After unloading the barge, Miss March swings the 'HEATHER BELL' around in order to head downhill towards the collieries to collect a load of slack. They will probably be travelling away from Tipton Green on the Cotterill Colliery Branch of the Birmingham Canal. This photograph appears to have been taken from the bridge which crosses the canal.
