This tour of the highlights of Halesowen was produced by the local cine society and is probably unfinished as a commentary only exists for the middle section of the film. The Norman church is the focus for the film-makers but more than sixty years on it is the everyday views of 1950s British cars in the town centre, the children enjoying the brand new boating lake, and the exciting attraction of a banked cycling track that provide the most interest.
