• Short Summary

    Snow scenes at Wisley Park (Surrey) and the home counties.

  • Description

    A film showing people at work and play at Wisley Park and the home counties after a heavy snowfall.

    A man is seen pushing a snow plough along clearing the snow. The ploughman is then seen helping a man push his car that has presumably got stuck.

    We then see various shots of children and adults alike enjoying and having fun in the snow. A boy on a sledge moves past the camera at speed. A small child is towed along by some older children, and some very good shots of people skating on the frozen pond at Wisley in Surrey.

    A women skates past in a woolly hat and red woolly jumper, she is quickly passed by a boy and girl playing ice hockey. They pass the puck back and forth a few times.

    Note: good footage of Britain in the middle of the freezing winter of 1963 - see also other stories in this issue - SL.

    Cuts exist - see separate records.
