This colour amateur film, made by a member of Haywards Heath & District Amateur Cine Society, captures the changing face of the agricultural landscape over the course of ten months.
Farm animals including pigs, geese and horses graze on the land in the opening months of the year. The appearance of daffodils, primroses, blossom and calves signals the start of Spring. Farm animals, machinery and produce are on display at the Bognor Regis Show in June. The following month sees the harvesting of crops - corn is bundled into stooks to finish ripening in the Summer sunshine. The rich colours of early Autumn are represented by images of wild berries and apple trees. Although the leaves have begun to fall from the trees by October, the West Sussex woodlands appear fresh and full of life.
