The Ockenden twins play in the garden as toddlers.


Two toddlers, both in dungarees, crawl and walk on a lawn. They play in the garden with an older girl. A woman with a pram is seen behind. One plays with a basin of water, clapping and smiling before sitting inside. Now slightly older, the two children play on tricycles in the garden, running across the lawn. The older girl rides her bicycle. The twins, wearing matching outfits, play with a cat in the garden at autumn. They run towards the camera, mouths open, waving sticks in the air. The children play in a paddling pool with others. An adult sits on the grass behind but soon joins in, leading the little boy round the edge of the paddling pool. Brief views of the Ockenden house follow.
