This home movie travelogue was shot over an impressive ten year period by W. Fradley of Chipping Norton. It's got it all: from a traditional farmers market at Stratford to streets thronging with tourists looking for the spirit of William Shakespeare and idyllic scenes at Warwick to a reminder of England's past with a Morris display in the ancient centre of England on the green at Meriden.
