This Charles Chislett film consists of three parts, all featuring employees of William Deacon's Bank, Rotherham, where Chislett was manager. The first two are earlier, in black and white; the third part was made in about 1955 in colour. The first is of a works sports day, the second is a Sexton Blake inspired fictional thriller filmed partly at the bank, and the third is a staff day at Chislett's home.
This film documents some of the events which took place in Walkington from 1973-1974. Events include a fancy dress competition, sports events, and the Walkington Victorian Hayride. The Hayride was an annual fundraising event taking place in East Yorkshire, and it was one of the largest processions of horse-drawn wheels in England.
