Summary

The group of friends known as 'The Gang' holiday in Felpham near Bognor Regis, West Sussex. Scenes on the beach are followed by views of the group walking in Felpham village and sitting outside a beach house.

Description

An amateur black and white film showing members of 'The Gang' walking along a road all wearing swimwear and bathing robes. The swimmers walk into the sea and start swimming, then dry off and start cavorting as they change.

'The Gang', now fully dressed, are seen walking along the beach and exploring an old wreck [or a dilapidated pier or staithes] on the beach before visiting Felpham village. Views of thatched cottages in Felpham and the group exiting the front door and walking into the road [possibly by Blake's Cottage]. 'The Gang' are seen walking along a leafy lane and then sitting on the veranda of a beach house. Various members of 'The Gang' pose for the camera on the front porch.
