The five clips we have are:-

  • Asbourne Shovetide Football- This clip shows a group of men taking part in this traditional event in wet conditions!
  • Long Eaton Carnival- This clip shows floats and parades from the hospital carnival in Long Eaton dated around the early 1930s.
  • High Peak Rail- Film from the early 1960s before the route was cut by Dr Beeching’s report, the clip shows a steam engine being watched by onlookers.
  • Illegal Street Gambling in Chesterfield- Police surveillance film from the early 1930s, this is an early example of film footage being used as evidence in a court case. Can you spot the punters from the bookmakers?
  • The Ashbourne Show- Clip from the 1930s showing horses and cattle being displayed at the annual show, which still takes place.
