Cleobury Mortimer, Highley and the Isle of Man in the late 1930s

More Shropshire goodness from the BFI's Britain on Film collection.

Click on the image above to view this film by Freddy Morrison of Cleobury Mortimer.

It combines shots of village life and people, including Cleobury's wonky spire, with footage of trips to Highley and the Isle of Man.

Look for coal miners and what was then a new road bridge in the former, and the TT races and horse-drawn trams in the latter.

Enjoy to the telephone number Cleobury Mortimer 6.

Horse-drawn trams which are still running in 2016 (although they almost weren't)
