    BEATING THE BOUNDS AT BARKING BY THE TOWER

    London.

    Several shots of the procession of people (priests and men in city robes seen in procession) carrying long sticks in their arms, moving slowly through the street. This is the ceremony of Beating the Bounds - reclaiming their territory. Procession stops and a priest offers a cup. People drink from the cup one after another.

    Several shots of the people waving their long sticks in the air beating each other stick - looks like they are having fun.
