    Set in the small Oxfordshire hamlet of Lark Rise and the wealthier neighbouring market town, Candleford, towards the end of the 19th century. The series chronicles the daily lives of farm workers, craftsmen and gentry, observing characters in loving, boisterous and competing communities of families, rivals, friends and neighbours.

    This world 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 cousin, the independent and effervescent Dorcas Lane (Julia Sawalha), who is Post Mistress at the local Post Office in Candleford. Through them, viewers experience the force of friendship as they see each other through the best and worst of times.
