brilliant - such beautiful music - well used

so poignant, through the woods :(

sad seeing the place deserted, but fitting in a way

Glad you liked it dwr... I wasn't sad at all when I was there.  It was lovely to know I was following in my heroes' footsteps and the atmosphere there is wonderful.  It was a dream come true to see the farm.   :)

Nice video, well made  >41< it makes me feel I've gone back in time.  :)
Shame to see the buildings in that state of disrepair  >:(  Follyfoot farm is a national treasury and should be treated so, Maybe a Number 10 petition for a lottery grant to restore it, who knows  ::)  I mean we only need 100 000 signatures and the series was aired in several countries world wide.
 I'm no expert on these kind of things but does anyone think it stands a chance or am I being a bit  >98<
And with the power of facebook to help us along who knows.  :)

Things have changed since Loopy made that video, one of the barns has been demolished. I don't think it will ever go back to it's original state now, unless the present owners sell up and we win the lottery   :(

No not at all   :)

Once the present owners eventually either sell up or pass away and another buyer with dreams, decides to rebuild and restore Hollin Hall back to Follyfoot times, then we can all become shareholders and turn the farm into a riding stables, come holiday rental, Museum and country retreat, themed pub! ;D  >41<

Thank you Tony - glad you liked it.  >41<  Hollin Hall has certainly changed... some for the good... most not to my taste I'm afraid.  I'm just so glad that Mr Loopy and I did this video when we did - it's a treasured memory.   >95<
