Burton upon Trent and Uttoxeter in 1957

ATV's film of rural North Nottinghamshire from 1957 turned out to include scenes of child sacrifice in Sherwood Forest.

There's nothing so dark here, but there is some industrial steam in Burton and a memorial to Dr Johnson in Uttoxeter, where the great man did penance in the market place.
