Cinemagazine 1953 9 mins


Mining communities from around the country let down their hair in these light-hearted news stories from Ystrad Gynlais, Stafford and the Norfolk coast. No matter if it's the ancient Celtic ceremony of dressing the Logan Stone in preparation for next year's Eisteddfod, or the more modern tradition of racing with a 100cwt sack of coal, the Brits always know how to have fun!
