Description

 Film by Archie Reid, 1985.

He travels around the North of England. First, he visits Haworth in Yorkshire. This village is famous for being the home of the Bronte sisters. Archie visits the parsonage, which was their house. He also sees the shops in the town, and locations that were the inspirations for their writing, like Top Withins, which may have been the inspiration for Wuthering Heights. 

In York, he sees the beautiful Shambles. At York Minster, an anti-nuclear protest is taking place.

He goes on to video a radio telescope and Winston Churchill's grave.

In Stratford Upon Avon, he stops to admire the canal boats. Then he visits the house Shakespeare was born in, and the home of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway.
