Description

This is a film of a Whit procession in the village of Clayton, near Bradford.

The film begins with a girl climbing onto a stage watched by a crowd gathered for the Whit procession.  A man is shown filming the scene as someone is conducting.  Then a marching band appears.  The band lead the parade, followed by a lorry and a horse and cart, each carrying children in Whit dress.  These are followed by people on foot.  They stop in a square to sing before moving off again.  More of the procession is shown before the film comes to an end.
