  • Description

    LAND RECLAMATION

    Norfolk.

    Several shots of the muddy Fenland at Norfolk. Various shots of men working on land reclamation - they create barriers so the water can be kept away from the muddy areas which are to become fertile fields. Men work on creating a barrier out of three branches, ropes and stones, which will stop the flooding and enable land reclamation. More shots of the men working. Long shot of the field with flock of sheep grazing.
