A collection of scenes filmed by Enid Briggs in the garden of Foreland House and at the Broadstairs seashore in the late 1920s.


The film opens in a garden with woman pulling at an item of clothing [?] a dog has got in its mouth. An older woman reads a book, talking to someone out of shot. She too tries to pull the item away from the dog. Four women assemble in front of Foreland House. Shots of men working on the sea front follow, moving a large cylindrical pipe [?]. Two women are seen walking together. The camera pans left across houses and a church to the beach and sea. Still at the seashore, three women wearing hats and coats walk together. Joined by others they are seen standing together in a group. Back at Foreland House, a chauffeur closes the door of a car after a female passenger. They are seen moving out of the drive and down to the street.
