Farming Scenes at Little London
Little disturbs the peace in Little London - despite some foxhunting, polo and the Second World War!
From the collection of:
This interesting film shows life on a small West Sussex farm in Little London near Pulborough during the war years. We begin at a woodland cottage, where a cat suns itself on a wall before going on patrol. A girl tends to a pair of goats and we also see a car with blackout hoods on its headlamps. A girl in jodhpurs rides her horse on local heathland after which we see a local hunt with foxhounds. We then see a showjumping display followed by a polo match possibly in the Midhurst area.
