    Full title reads "Fittleworth, Sussex "A LITTLE BIT OF OLD ENGLAND" - Storrington Foot Beagles annual Meet in the shadow of the historic "Swan Hotel" - unchanged through the centuries."

    Fittleworth, Sussex.

    Men in hunting outfits are gathered on the village road. One of them releases dogs (beagles) from the van. Men and dogs walking along the village road, passing houses and fields. People, (hunt followers) walking through gates - two biglers are on the sides of gates - they are holding their hats in which people put something - are they paying?

    Note: Bigling - a jolly sport of the upper classes where they go out on foot with their beagles and hunt for small creatures - mainly rabbits and hares.
