It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
This is a film showing the Duchess of Kent unveiling two plaques commemorating the opening of the North Yorks Moors Railway on May 1st, 1973. It also shows some of the work done to the station at Pickering, a journey along the line and the family of the filmmaker, Hugh Newsam.
