  • Description

    Full titles read: "Ancient Order of Foresters - from all over Britain - make pilgrimage to grave of 'Little John' - Robin Hood's lieutenant - on borders of the Sherwood Forest."

    Hathersage, Derbyshire.

    High angle shot of a line of smartly-dressed men, presumably from the Ancient Order of Foresters, following two bearded men carrying a wreath as they walk down a path away from a church; a large crowd watches. More men in cavalier-style costumes follow. High angle L/S of a clergyman and the crowd of men standing at the grave of Little John; M/S of the gravestone. The huge wreath is placed on a tree above the grave. Panning shot of the crowd watching the clergyman conducting the service.

    Followed by what seems to be cuts from the story; a huge procession marches through the town, carrying banners and watched by people on the pavement and sitting in parked cars. M/Ss panning across a group of men of the Ancient Order of Foresters.
