    Alnwick, Northumberland.

    New Year's Day Meet in Village Street attended by Duke (Henry George Percy) and Duchess (Helen) of Northumberland and family.

    M/S of three people in hunting gear on horseback riding through a stone archway, a pack of hounds run alongside the horse's feet. M/S of a crowd of people in a village street, in the foreground is a pack of Beagles and several huntsmen on horseback. The crowd look poor, probably working class while the riders look very wealthy.

    M/S of a young boy on horseback standing next to an elder huntsman, also on horseback. M/S of a lady draped in furs (the Duchess?) with two smartly dressed girls and a little boy, they are standing next to a parked car. M/S of a butler standing next to a man in hunting pink sipping a drink from a glass. L/S of the horse riders and dogs coming down Alnwick High Street, a crowd of poor looking villagers follow the aristocratic hunting party.
