I’ve made something I really wanted to exist. It’s a very simple website that when you load it, it plays a short video of England on a one-minute repeating loop. Since we can’t go to England, and even people there can’t visit the countryside, I wanted to create something so that people could do it virtually. There are 4 videos, the default is birdsong in Dorset. It should work on any device but looks best on a computer. Once you hit play, the video will repeat until you close the window. I recommend putting it on fullscreen, with headphones. It’s relaxing and will transport you to the English countryside. If people like this, I can work on making the site more sophisticated, but this is something I mostly wanted for myself but thought everyone else might like too. Also, the video files are about 30mb each, so will take a second to load. I hope you enjoy them!

I’m so glad I made this. My favorite one so far is the rain and birds of Castle Combe in Wiltshire in a repeating loop. It’s sublime and perfect. It’s lovely to work to. You can watch and listen for yourself here: https://anglotopia.tv/combe.html
If you like this, please leave a comment or feedback. I have more videos like this in our archive, but if I add any more videos, I’ll need to make the site a little more sophisticated, which will take work. I’m also working on adding it as a feature in the Anglotopia mobile app.
There are no ads or anything (or email sign-up prompts). Just video. Just the English countryside. Just paradise.
