This short black and white film shows the beach on a stormy day with the waves breaking violently on the sea walls; a family group can be seen in the distance. The second film is of a group of men playing a game of bowls and a woman doing some gardening in the Lockwood family garden in Felpham.


This film compilation opens with shots of the waves breaking against a sea wall over some rocks. Houses are seen in the background, whilst a family group sit in the distance on the sea wall. The sea is growing stormy and the family group hurry along a path on the other side. In the next section, three men are in the garden of the house in Felpham, playing a game of bowls whilst a woman is tending to the garden. The woman waves at the camera as she enters an outbuilding to get a broom. The men continue to play their game as the camera follows the bowls game.
