This footage comes from a set of five films which were shot by pupils of Ellerby Lane primary school in Leeds between 1951-1953. This particular piece of film shows a drawing of Fountains Abbey, located near Ripon, where in 1952, according to Mary Milner, a former Ellerby student and writer on these set of films, the pupils visited.

A wall calendar says the date is the 7th of July 1953, the seven circled.
