Titles read: "The Marshmen. Along the Norfolk Broads - smooth, peaceful highways of East Anglia."
Scenic shots of the Norfolk broads. A girl sits on the river bank beside harvested corn or reeds. A boat drifts by on the river.
Intertitle: "There we meet the Marshmen - harvesting the reeds."
A man sharpens his scythe while a young girl watches. Two men cut down the reeds that grow beside the river and tie them into bundles.
Intertitle: "Protection against the floods whilst growing, they are used for thatching - and for musical instruments - when harvested."
Men pile the bundles of reeds onto a boat. Men and girls pull the boat along. Nice shots of girls handling a sailing boat on the river.
