    Somerset.

    Various shots of wooden soled shoes being made a factory. The soles have leather uppers and leather treads (to prevent wear and noise whilst walking). Various shots of pair of finished ladies' shoes being compared to pair of old fashioned Lancashire clogs. The modern wooden shoes are marginally less frumpy than the Lancashire clogs.

    Wooden shoes were wartime alternative, due to leather and rubber shortages.
