This gentle film from 1966 shows the members of the Kingston & District Cine Club messing about on the Grand Union Canal and doing what they clearly love best - film. Travelling along on the pleasure boat Fair Lady we see members operating the locks whilst others on board and on the canal banks film the journey. The Club members enjoy afternoon tea onboard before arriving at Rickmansworth.
