A West Country Tonight film. Chester the Chalford Donkey delivers shopping around this Gloucestershire village every Saturday. In this clip, we see him walking the steep paths where in times gone past donkeys used to deliver bread, groceries and coal. Chester and his friend Teddy are part of a revival of this tradition and the villagers of Chalford are pleased to receive their shopping by this unusual method of transport.
