This short film shows aspects of agriculture and country life in the Yorkshire Dales.

A motorbike races down a country road with people camping in a field. Children on skates go to a village local shop, T Calveat & Son. Wensleydale cheese and butter are being sold by the side of a country road. In the distance a steam train passes through fields, filmed from various places along its journey. Out in the fields sheep are being herded and people are raking the cut straw.
