THE Chideock Society is hosting an unusual event at its April meeting when its is screening clips from a cine film taken in the village in 1940.

The film was shot by the Rev J G Walker who was the vicar of Saint Giles and records his arrival, village scenes, farming and even a steam train on the old Uplyme line and features on parts of the undercliff which no longer exist, including the cottage that served teas and the old road from Lyme to Charmouth.
