Tranquillity on the home front: a visit to a peaceful Cheshire town.
From the collection of:
The peaceful and prosperous Cheshire town of Knutsford positively glows in this beautifully shot reel from local filmmaker Jack Eachus. The town contains a variety of unusual buildings, and it is hard to believe that some of this exotic architecture is in Britain. It is even harder, from the film's leisurely pace and the tranquil, sunlit streets, to believe that this is a country at war.
