Hunting, hosiery, pork pies and cheese is what Leicestershire is best known for according to this film produced for the local branch of the Council for the Protection of Rural England. England's least known county it claims, but this comprehensive survey of its historic landmarks and characterful villages makes it ripe for discovery, from the grand pile that is Belvoir Castle to gems like the packhorse bridge at Anstey and the award winning village of Waltham on the Wolds.
