Titles read: "BEAUTY AND THE BARGE".
Various shots of three girl bargees, Audrey, Anne and Evelyn preparing their three barges for a journey from London to Birmingham. They are taking essential war materials to the Midlands as part of their work for the Grand Union Canal Company.
They cast off and steer their barges along the canal. Commentator makes much of the fact that the girls are doing "a man-sized job".
Good shot of one of the girls in a barge kitchen, poking a stove. View from a barge as we pass under a bridge.
