Cropwell Butler Millennium Video
This DVD was put together by 3 enthusiast amateurs from the village, Bob Wier and Pat & David Evans. It was filmed to celebrate the turn of the millennium and is a fascinating account of the life and times of Cropwell Butler.
The video is over an hour in duration so it has been broken up into 12 chapters with 2 chapters available on each link. The quality is not great as the film was originally done on tape and later converted to DVD . However it is a real gem and well worth watching. Of particular interest are the old pictures of the shops, pubs and business which plied their trade in Cropwell Butler together with modern day photographs of where they were located in the village.
There are also interviews with elderly villagers who reminisce about growing up and living in Cropwell Butler , in some cases over 90 plus years.
