The Village Sleeps Again (1962)

It's a while since we have had a Look at Life film, so hear is The Village Sleeps Again from 1962 on the building of bypasses.

As it turns out, the film is more about towns than villages and is notable for the cavalier attitude displayed towards urban clearance, the half-timbered house in Exeter and its mouse apart.

But there is some appealing footage of Markyate in Hertfordshire and Stilton in Huntingdonshire (as it then was) towards the end.
