A film insert from a documentary about Rockingham Forest in Northamptonshire.





Film type:

Black & White / Sound





Master format:



The opening section shows fox hunting shots (likely to be library pictures). We then see views of Rockingham Forest in Northamptonshire. There are exterior shots of Southwick Hall and Kirby Hall near Gretton which now exists only as a shell. This is followed by a view of the Stewarts and Lloyds steelworks at Corby and shots of the large scale excavation of iron ore. This is followed by further views of the forest showing both recently planted areas on former iron ore sites and ancient oaks that still survive. We also see a brief view of the church at Weldon. The next section shows the wildlife that makes a home in the forest. We see shots of roe deer in snow, a fox hunting a rat, a song thrush on a branch, a great tit, a nighingale on a branch and further shots of deer and foxes. The deer are shown 'fraying' or wearing down the young trees and we also see a sparrow hawk which is now rare due to pollution. The final shots show a woman hand rearing leverets (baby hare) and a deer fawn.
