  • Description

    Cockington, Devon.

    L/S of a great looking old village - there is tranquility in the air. M/S of a country house. L/S of a house roof seen through the blossoms. Low angle shot of a great looking church. This is 'the prettiest village in England' - says the voiceover.

    M/S of, what looks like, ancient walls. Considering that the village exists since 11th century these walls are most probably as ancient as they look. M/S of an archway leading to an ancient well. M/S of a cherry blossom. Several shots of different flowers and bushes emphasises the beauty of the gardens. This is accompanied with the voiceover's discovery that one of the greatest English horticulturists, Robert Sweet, was born in this village. L/S of a lovely looking country house.

    Succession of shots of different flowers. Considering the variety of scents around, it seems only natural that the old village industry was the distilling of perfume. M/S of a wooden sign leading to an old village wishing well. L/S of the well.
