  • Description

    Cader Adris, North Wales.

    General view of hills of Cader Adris. Various shots of a herd of sheep up a hill. A shepherd and a dog round them up to take them to lower ground for winter. Good scenic shots of the sheep being rounded up.

    Various shots of sheep arriving at Droos-y-Nant station. A guard drags one reluctant sheep into a wagon and the rest follow. Other guards make funny swooping actions with their arms to get the sheep inside. The flock includes one black sheep. Shepherds talk to engine driver. Nice high angle view of a steam train leaving the country station.
