Description

This is a film of children at the 21st Avenue School in Hull on a trip to Wheeldale Moor and Whitby.

The school boys and their teachers are gathered next to a line of blue and cream coloured coaches.  They are next seen walking over some stepping stones crossing a stream on the Wade's Causeway on Wheeldale Moor, where we see a sign for the Roman Road.  The group walk towards and past the camera, with an old stone building behind them.  They are next visiting Captain Cook’s Monument in Whitby, and then down climbing on the rocks on the beach.  Then they are in large dining hall before walking around Whitby harbour and the river, eating candy floss.
