Honey Country

The hives of Hampshire are the centrepiece of this tour of the county, from Aldershot to Bournemouth and all points in between.

Travelogue 1950 15 mins Silent


Forests, beaches, parkland and historic cities - Hampshire has plenty to boast about. It may seem a little odd that this travelogue pays more attention to its honey industry than anything else, but it offers an interesting diversion on this whistle-stop tour of the county. The commentary mixes history and geography with a sprinkling of forthright opinions, such as that "Southampton is not a beautiful city, it has no inspiring buildings". Sorry, Sotonians...
