    Droitwich Spa, Hereford and Worcester (?).

    L/S of exterior of Droitwich Spa. Notice reads: "St Andrew's Brine Bath".

    Interior of the baths as several bathing belles walk down into the water. They are quite posh and we hear them saying: "Ooh, it's lovely and warm" and "Isn't it funny how your legs go up immediately?" L/S of them all splashing around. They make a circle and float around together.

    Intertitle reads: "You can draw, have your tea - or even try billiards or snooker on its briny surface. (Standing up in the water, you can't sink lower than your armpits.)" The girls lift their legs - perhaps they are practising their high kicks? Another girl tries to draw a picture in the pool. Nice shots of them all having cups of tea, brought to them by a man. They attempt to have a game of miniature snooker. Various shots of the girls enjoying the water. Fun.
