Jewell Personal Film 32

Climb every mountain - or the British ones that matter anyway - in this travel compilation by an adventurous amateur filmmaker in Wales and Scotland.

Amateur film 1955 17 mins


Putting over 15,000ft of 8mm film through his camera in over 25 different countries across 40 years, John C. Jewell was anyone’s idea of an adventurer. This film is a comparative walk in the park, compiling a variety of travels closer to home around Snowdonia and mostly in Scotland. If you haven’t made it up Ben Nevis yourself, then here is a bird’s eye view from top in the mid-1950s.
