  • Description

    New Ash Green, Kent.

    Succession of shots of rural England. Lovely trees in bloom, country cottages... Greater public demand for return to village life has inspired a group of builders and architects to build a new village which corresponds to demands of contemporary life without disturbing rural balance. If it proves successful, the scheme could be applied elsewhere in Britain - voiceover concludes.

    Men are seen discussing a model of a new village spread in front of them. Several H/A shots of the model. Cut to location of the new village near Hartly in Kent. New village is called New Ash Green and it is located within easy commuting range of London.

    Succession of shots showing different stages of creating the new village. People building, painting, decorating and finally planting grass plants and trees to blend with the environment.

    Various shots of the finished village. Houses, gardens, pedestrian paths... Various shots of the interior of the houses showing spacious rooms filled with modern furniture, modern kitchen etc.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
