Description

Opening title [blurred]: "Jan 1966"; the film opens with views of Church Road, Hove, looking towards the burnt out Hove Town Hall. A crane can be seen next to the Town Hall and vans and lorries are parked on the road.

The film cuts to Horsham and scenes of the town, The Causeway and St. Mary's Church. More scenes filmed on The Causeway, looking towards Carfax. People are seen playing in a nearby park.

Sign: "The Fox"; shots of the Fox public house at Patching near Worthing. People are standing around outside, including a policeman (a police car is also parked next to the pub). A group of huntsmen on horses enter the pub car park. A horse box pulls up and horses are led from it; dark shots of hounds being let out of a parked lorry. The hunt group moves off from the car park; people are standing nearby watching (a woman appears to wave her fist). Elsewhere, a small group of people look around outside Patching church; the film ends with a brief shot of some nearby cottages.
