Great vintage footage from the British Pathé

The British Pathé website is a great archive for old footage of Britain over the last century or so. My mate Denzil introduced it to me as he found it whilst looking for paths on the internet.

Anyhow, here are a few great little videos I have found of good old Cornwall. Cheers Denzil!

Lovely footage of  Bob Barron going fishing from Mevagissey harbour for conger eel,  filmed in 1955 – Click here

Captain of the sunken ship, “Flying Enterprise”, and his rescuers welcomed in Falmouth. Great footage of the hero’s welcome received on the Prince of Wales pier in 1952 – Click here

And finally for now a little snippet of Obby Oss which is celebrated in Padstow on the 1st May. This footage was shot in 1932 – its brilliant! – Click here
