An amateur colour film which records life on and around Horsham's streets in the early 1960s.


Green single-decker and double-decker buses traverse the roads in Horsham town centre, passing a building site where a bulldozer is filmed at work. Elsewhere a warehouse is adorned with several 'To Let' signs. Lorries, cars, motorbikes and bicycles also use the roads. Shoppers peruse the food and clothing stalls at the outdoor market, and do some window shopping. Chickens are reared in a residential area, away from the town centre. The film ends with a sequence showing traction engines in a park where they manouevre round bollards on a course
