    Contrary to the description, none of this is filmed in Dartmouth. The first section is all easily identified as Plymouth (the distinctive tower of the Guildhall is clearly seen in many shots). The final section is not a 'dam', but scenes of the china clay pits and related works, presumably near St Austell given the sign the camera dwells on at one point.

    As for the bull, no idea - handsome fellow, though!
