    Full title reads: "Alnwick, Northumberland. celebrates the advent of Lent with Centuries' old football game."

    Alnwick, Northumberland.

    A group of men, led by a man playing Northumbrian pipes, walk through the grounds of what is probably Alnwick Castle. They are handed a football by a man. They continue marching on.

    They march out of the Castle gates where a small crowd have gathered.

    A large group of men and women are walking along the road.

    High angle shot of people walking across field.

    Large number of men playing what appears to be a very free form and rough game with a football. The ball is forced around what appears to be some form of goal, covered with leaves.

    A man is wading through a river with the ball. He is being watched from the far bank by a small crowd. He throws the ball and then begins to swim after it. Another man is racing after him in the water. They get the ball to the bank.
