East Anglian Holiday

1954 , East Anglia (Other)

A tour of East Anglia and the various towns and cities it has to offer.

Opening shots show a church across cornfields, a tower mill and parts of the broads and fens. Shots of a drainage ditch in the Fens follows, (The Sixteen Foot Drain at Stonea, identified by the signpost; the B1098 showing Downham Market and Wisbech to the left and Stonea and Chatteris to the right). Men and women working in the fields, produce is shown including potatoes, strawberries (which have come from Long Sutton) and flowers. Scenes of flowers being grown commercially suggest that this piece of film was shot in the Fens of South Lincolnshire. The film turns its attention to Ely. There is a shot of Ely Cathedral from the South, followed by close-up views of the Cathedral and the Octagon Tower. General views of the town show the impressive scenery Ely has to offer. Breckland with good views of the heathland, the forest at Thetford Chase, and flint churches. The flint flushwork on Kings Lynn's St. George's Guildhall, and general views of old Lynn including the Customs House, with commentary in a regional voice. The film shows brief footage of Blakeney, Happisburgh, and north Norfolk Beaches. At Great Yarmouth the boating lake and fairground amusements, the Wellington Pier in the background. A Punch and Judy show and scenes of crowded beaches and streets. A shot of Herrings being unloaded at Lowestoft quay, followed by the market interior and a brief view of steam drifters. A brief view of Harwich harbour is prelude to a sequence showing trawling from a small boat - there is a rich view of flat fish. A fisherman returns to Southwold, and a shot of The Church of Holy Trinity, Blythburgh leads into sequences taken around the town of Southwold. Then Orford is surveyed, with views of the castle; the ford at Kersey, and a general view of the village. Dedham, Framlingham and Lavenham are shown in quick succession. Shots of The Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Lavenham and the fifteenth-century Guildhall. A thatcher at work putting in the brotches on All Saints Church in Ringsfield (near Beccles). A shot of the Stour near Dedham leads into views of Flatford Mill, then Horstead Mill (Norfolk) and general river scenes including Oulton Broad. A distant view of Norwich Cathedral is followed by a tour of old Norwich including Elm Hill, the Civic Hall, castle and market. Several shots of sailing boats on the Broads, cruising and rounding buoys. The ruins Castle Acre Priory are depicted, and finally general views of the countryside.
