  • Description

    Skegness, Lincolnshire and Minehead, Somerset.

    Great little fibreglass toboggans are manufactured in a factory in Skegness. Some are tea tray shaped and others are circular. They are painted red. Two handles are applied Great shots of the kids trying them out on a dry ski slope.

    Butlin's Holiday Camp in Minehead. Holidaymakers are given skiing lessons on a dry ski slope. Spectators watch.

    Water-skiing. Various shots of expert water-skiers being towed through a murky lake. Beginners have a go and most fall in. One water-skier ducks under the ropes of two other water-skiers. The "champion" water-skier takes a "nose dive" at the end - presumably for the benefit of the cameras.

    Note: for search purposes - Butlins.
