Lovers' Lane

1931 , Derby (Derbyshire)

Romance and tragedy go hand in hand on Lovers' Lane.

Amateur filmmaker, cinema historian and railway engineer H.A.V. Bulleid creates a brooding atmosphere in this tale of young love turned sour. When Jack and Daphne seal their love on Lovers' Lane, they promise to meet there every month to commemorate their marriage. Despite starting out as the happiest couple in the world, Jack soon becomes distant and when he is increasingly called away on business, Daphne suspects he may be getting tired of her. And when Jack begins seeing someone else, he asks Daphne for a divorce, with tragic consequences.
