It's rare in a Mitchell and Kenyon film for straw boaters, bowlers and top hats to outnumber flat caps, but this film shows some of Northampton's townspeople at leisure, resplendent in their Sunday best. The park had opened to the public in 1897, but it's clear that a public promenade was already very much in fashion. It's just possible to make out a bandstand performance in the background

While the younger children in this lively film are vigilantly corralled by their schoolmistresses, the older boys get special dispensation to react freely to Mitchell & Kenyon's cameras. As so often in these films, the action is partly staged. The neat and healthy appearance is in contrast to the often visible poverty of the workers in many of the filmmakers' factory films

This most evocative of Mitchell & Kenyon's fairground films shows an array of wonderful rides - the Racing Bantams carousel, boat swings, switchback gondolas - and the delighted faces of the holiday crowd. Better still, it shows the fantastic frontage of Green's Cinematograph show where this very film would have been shown. The intriguing machine in the foreground is a coin-operated phonograph

From Bolton Town Hall the competitors set off on the 33-mile walk to Southport in this section of the race, very visibly sponsored by Oxo, a prominent supporter of Edwardian sporting events. The walkers are accompanied by a cavalcade of wheeled transport, including cycles, horse-drawn carts, a tram and a single motor car. The eventual winner was Jack Butler, the boater-sporting number 53

The imposing sight of Buxton's Georgian Crescent and the 18th century Devonshire Dome behind it is as familiar to locals today as it would have been to this film's Edwardian audience. Commissioned from travelling filmmakers Mitchell and Kenyon by exhibitor Mr Tweedale, the film was shown in February 1901 in the Pavilion theatre, part of the then unfinished Buxton Opera House
