Overview

Idyllic scenes in Latimer, Amersham and Coleshill are combined with rural wanderings "through the cornfields and woods to the valley of the River Chess". This film survives incomplete but contains many charming country sights, from pitchforks and haycarts to blacksmiths and travelling salesmen. There is no mention of Milton, who lived in Chalfont St Giles - presumably he was covered later on in the film.
