Summary

Using time-lapse techniques, the film records a speeded-up journey along the length of the A299 Thanet way in Kent, traveling East to West, from St Nicholas at Wade to Brenley Corner. Filming both from the roadside and 'point-of-view' shots from the traveling car, the journey appears as a lightening fast ride through the Kent countryside.
