We’ve recently been alerted to footage of Cobham from 1944. The film can be found on Screen Archive South East’s website and shows village life in Cobham. The film follows villagers as they walk through the quiet streets and lanes, head into shops and pubs and wander past the church and almshouses. It also features the film maker’s children as they walk and ride through the village.
