• Short Summary

    Mrs Joan Woolner leaves her cliff-top house at Ecclesbourne Glen in Hastings.

  • Description

    Hastings, East Sussex.

    Various shots show Mrs Joan Woolner at her cliff-top house at Ecclesbourne Glen. The house is literally built on the edge of a cliff. She throws a bucket of dust over the wall and cleans a window. She gets water from a pump outside the house then climbs down the cliff to pick up bits of wood for the fire.

    We hear that the garden has already fallen into the sea, and although the house is said to be quite safely built on solid rock, Mrs Woolner has decided to move to Richmond.

    Several shots of removal men and boys carrying bits of furniture from the cliffside house, up a steep path and loading it onto a truck.
