I watched this VHS when I was about 9 (I'm 25 now) - but I know it was from much much further back as it was grainy looking and I think black and white..

It was a british programme, a group of puppets, with normal body and faces. They had the texture of rough brown linen, with faces drawn/painted on. They had british accents, softly spoken and I'm pretty sure all voiced by one man.

All I remember was the opening credits had a gate opening scene, in like a countryside or field. The characters had naturey names like "Mr Oak" and "Mrs Bramble" - I made those up but they were something like that. I think I remember the word "hollow" in the title but google provides nothing...

There was one episode where the main character fell and hurt himself I think.

Sorry, that's all I got. I've been searching high and low and come up with nada so far.

Have you tried searching for old children's programmes? I'm sure there are many lists out there you can peruse. –  DisgruntledGoat Mar 17 '13 at 1:14
    
Probably not what you're looking for, but this question reminded me of Woolly Valley nzonscreen.com/title/woolly-valley-1981 –  NiceOrc Mar 17 '13 at 21:37

Sounds like Camberwick Green or one of its closely related shows narrated by Brian Cant.

List of characters here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camberwick_Green

Other nearby places also had series, Camberwick Green was about village life, the nearest town was Trumpton and the local aristocrat lived at Chigley.

Together they are known as the Trumptonshire trilogy, by Gordon Murray.

Might it be The Pogles, from the late, great Oliver Postgate?

A blast from my own past :)
