Part of the Kathleen Lockwood collection, this film features The Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate, Harewood House near Leeds, and a bird zoo.
This film was made by an amateur filmmaker who was a farmer from Reighton, near Filey, North Yorkshire. The film includes footage of general construction on the family farm, the family going for a service at the village church, the start of a hunt ending, and boys sword dancing.
This is one of several films entitled 'Out and About' made by Ken Leckenby, a member of the Mercury Movie Makers cine club. The film documents events from 1978-1979 including the 21st Anniversary at Springfields Gardens, Spalding, the annual West Indian Carnival in Leeds, and a trip to Scarborough Zoo and Marineland.
Made by members of the Harrogate Cine Club, this film gives the viewer a guided tour to the town of Harrogate, particularly showing it as a beautiful and exciting place to visit.
