Just around the corner from the Wool Merchant Hotel - and conveniently just opposite the Ring O'Bells Inn - is an old railway siding. Under the arches that support the railway line are a set of old coal hoppers. The railway trucks would tip the coal into the hoppers and the horses and carts (and later the wagons) of the coal merchants would collect it. This photograph was taken yesterday, but whilst taking it I remembered having photographed the same scene 45 years before. Maybe I will come across the negative during my trawls through the negative files.
