Description

A home movie showing a family group visiting the towns of Harrogate and Ripley in North Yorkshire.

This film is of holiday or excursion footage to two picturesque towns in North Yorkshire.

The film opens with views of formal gardens in Harrogate town centre. Two women admire flower beds of colourful tulips. Ornamental cherry trees are in full bloom in a park. A man films a close up of one of the trees.

The two women seen earlier walk towards the camera. A hollow tree gives two men the opportunity for some horseplay as they hide in the trunk.

The same group of men and women are filmed in Ripley. One of the men tries the local stocks near the Boars Head Inn.

A view of a fountain adorned with a life size statue of a boar closes the film.
