This film follows the Corder Family on holiday in Blakeney, Norfolk and surrounding towns in the early 1950s. The family visit a church in Walsingham, Norfolk and explore the countryside.
The film shows the family on the beach dressed in swimwear (faded shots), walking along a beach and paddling in the sea. Panoramic shots of the beach and coastal landscape, and the family playing with a boat (Very dark) follow. The family now indoors, sit around a table eating cake and drinking tea as a large group.
The family are then seen walking up from the beach with the harbour behind them. A scene of a car park, is followed by scenes of the family near to the harbour. The film then focuses on the water, where a sailboat with racing numbers passes the camera (14/K37?). Several other pleasure boats are seen moored in the harbour.
The family are seen playing in a river, followed by a panorama of a village street with cars driving through from a car park. This is then followed by several shots of the exterior of a church 'The Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham', with shots of the church sign outside.
The next section follows the family on a walking tour of the countryside, where the family sit on a bridge over a river to take photographs and pet horses in a field. The family then return to the beach. The camera captures a plane flying overhead (?) returning to the children playing on the beach. (Blemishes & holes in stock). The final film is of another sail boat with race number (TE16) followed by a houseboat (?) that has toppled over on dry land.
