"At King's Bridge, the quaint ancient timbered houses - " C/U of beautiful timbered buildings with floral window boxes right on the river's edge.

C/U of another woman working at a primitive hand spinning machine. M/S of woman at a small loom. C/U of her hands as she passes the bobbin between the warps (or wefts!) M/S of another weaver at work.
