    Titles read: "GRETNA GREEN - A NEW PHASE".

    Scotland.

    Various shots of signposts directing visitors to marriage venues in Gretna Green; several point to the original Blacksmith's shop and marriage rooms. Commentator talks of how the runaway marriage business is growing.

    Animated sequence shows a couple (in 1920s dress) going to Gretna Green to get married at the Blacksmith's shop. New signs appear, advertising different blacksmith's as the place to get wed; men are seen carrying anvils (to their new marriage venues). A country lane with a sign pointing 'To Ye Olde Forge' is rapidly covered with new blacksmith's shops and marriage rooms.
