The Gowlland family film their move from their home 'Squerrys' in Croydon, Surrey to their new house 'Poyntington' in Westerham, Kent. The film shows furniture loaded into the removal van. At their new house, members of the family relax in the garden. A tree stump in the garden is filmed being removed. At Westerham station, a steam train waits to depart.
