Welcome to Redhill; The Jewel of the South

From the collection of:
The discreet charms of mid-seventies Redhill are on display in this film from the North Downs Cinematographic Society - from its architectural delights to the orderliness of its streets.

The scenes of dereliction are neatly rounded off with a burst of Land of Hope and Glory.
