Lambing at Upton Magna near Shrewsbury in February 1956

My meanderings around YouTube have turned up this charming film clip of life on the farm in Upton Magna in Shropshire (February 1956).

February 1956 looks like a very chilly late winter season but the lambs are not fazed one bit. The 60 year old shepherd is on hand to bottle feed any lambs that need it.

And a delightful take on Mary and her Little Lambs from 1937.

And with more groaning puns than you ever thought possible,

a story from Weston near Newark in Nottinghamshire (1952) of a real live bar-lamb!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Hope you enjoyed it!
