Delightful village scenes of animals, children and ice cream are almost too quaint to be true!

This unnamed village looks almost too quaint to be true, with its cycling postman, ambling cows, ducklings, shire horses and piglets. The film may feature more than one village - perhaps it was made to sing the praises of village life in general, rather than as a record of a particular place? The film was made by Matthew Nathan, a prolific and prize-winning amateur filmmaker.
