An item about an postman who delivers mail on horseback to remote houses on the moor.
Jack Bellamy delivers post to remote houses on the moors with the help of Tosca the horse.
Jack rides the horse down to a river to drink. Various shots of the rapid flowing river. Jack rides over a stream and up a country lane. Various shots of Jack delivering a newspaper to an old woman - Mrs. Skitterly - holding a ferret (Henrietta). More shots of Jack riding across rough moorland terrain and streams. The postman stops at a remote farm. A woman and a little boy feed Tosca bits of bread.
Jack gave up running his post office nine years ago at the age of sixty to do this delivery round.
Cuts exist - please see separate record.
