Stonier, with technical guidance from J. Holmes. Two versions were produced; one of 10 minutes in duration for general usage and the other of 25 minutes in duration for schools usage.

The History of Shipley Country Park - past and present

Proposal: To use historical photographs, line drawings and re-enactment to show the history of Shipley, particularly in the 19th century. A video film was produced, involving a local primary school. Film designed and scripted by N. Rathbone, D. Stonier and scheme historians.

The Nutbrook Canal

Originally in a slide-tape format but put onto video. Research by R. Thornhill. Production by C. Scott and N. Rathbone.


The three team photographers made a considerable photographic record of the natural history of the Country Park and events at the park, spanning the full two years of the scheme, using both 35 mm slide and print formats. Copies were made of many monochrome historical prints and these were catalogued.


The maintenance staff, notably G. Lockwood, completed a number of carpentry jobs, such as display boards and cabinets and nesting boxes for wild birds. Minor decorative improvements also were undertaken.
