This film is in three parts: the first shows the retirement presentation of Mr Fell, the second a day at Pontefract races, and the third of places in Wales and Cheddar Gorge.
Made by Mercury Movie Makers, this film documents a sports day and fete which take place in Arncliffe village in order to raise funds to put towards the rebuilding of the village hall. Arncliffe is a small village in North Yorkshire whose houses, cottages, and other buildings face in towards a large green, and outwards to green hillsides etched with limestone scars. The village was the original setting for the fictional village of Beckindale in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale Farm, from its inception in 1972 until the relocation to Esholt.
This film is one of several from the Parkin collection. It depicts family activities in the countryside on their visit to Castleford, a trip to the seaside and a birthday party.
