Horse drawn carriage at the Cross on East Road, turning into Dawes Lane. Berwick House in the distance looks as if it is still under construction. The carriage is similar to the one outside the old Victory in MMC_P755_013 . The name on the side of the carriage could be 'Lancaster'. This arrangment of 3 horses is sometimes known as a 'Unicorn Hitch'.
