Lark Rise to Candleford is a period drama series, adapted by the BBC from Flora Thompson’s trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels about the English countryside. Set in the small Oxfordshire hamlet of Lark Rise, and the wealthier neighbouring town of Candleford towards the end of the 19th century, the series follows the daily lives of farm workers, craftsmen, and gentry. The story is seen through the eyes of a teenage girl, Laura Timmins (Olivia Hallinan), as she leaves Lark Rise to start a new life under the wing of her mother’s cousin, Dorcas Lane (Julia Sawalha), who is Post Mistress at the local Post Office in Candleford.
The series stars Mark Heap as Thomas Brown, who you may recognise from Friday Night Dinner.
