Summary

Views of Chichester City Centre with scenes of traffic around Chichester Cross and along streets in the city centre. The camera takes in shots of various shops and businesses and the shoppers and cyclists passing by.

Description

This colour film from the mid-1960s starts with views across fields towards the cathedral, as seen from the railway footbridge. The film then captures the Chichester Cross (the Market Cross) at the intersection of the city centre's four main roads - where pedestrians and traffic pass around the monument. Shoppers and cyclists are among the cars on the busy streets. Chichester's Georgian buildings are featured along with a variety of shopfronts and businesses, including: fuel pumps at Pages Garage, Arthur Purchase & Son, Constable, J. Sainsbury, next to W. H. Smith & Son, and Stead and Simpson.
