Two couples enjoy a motor boating holiday along the River Thames, passing through several locks, stopping at riverside pubs and towns, fishing off the side of the boat, cooking and cleaning, and observing the serene river lifestyle. The film's main cameraman was a member of Haywards Heath & District Amateur Cine Society.
