Overview

Flora Thompson's charming love letter to a vanished corner of rural England is brought to life in this warm-hearted adaptation. Set in the Oxfordshire countryside in the 1880s, this rich, funny and emotional series follows the relationship of two contrasting communities: Lark Rise, the small hamlet gently holding on to the past, and Candleford, the small market town bustling into the future. Seen through the eyes of young Laura Timmins (Olivia Hallinan), their inhabitants endure many upheavals and struggles as change inexorably comes; their stories turn poignant, spirited and uplifting. And Laura herself must face great change. Taking a job in the Post Office in Candleford, run by the mercurial Dorcas Lane (Julia Sawalha), she turns her back on her childhood hamlet to make her way in the world. With her loyalties divided, she must choose her own path to womanhood.

    vacation from home

    It was a lovely series and truly engaging. Each character and every actor portraying them were simply brilliant. I can't wait for Season 2. It was like taking a little vacation to old England. Not only moving, but sometmes, laugh-out-loud funny.
