Walt, his wife and two daughters arrived just after lunch in the village.  Walt had scratched in his diary before strolling off to point his cine-camera around the village – and these are stills taken from that colour film.  Other fading photographs show Walt absorbed in the search for facts about his family name at the village of Norton Disney just West of Lincoln.

From what I can find out Walt and family were on their way up to Scotland – and Inverness in particular before returning to Denham Film Studios for Treasure Island planning.
