Water is transported from Wotton-under-Edge to the neighbouring village of Wortley by horse and cart. The cart has paused outside a row of cottages, and the water man is dispensing buckets of drinking water from the tank on the cart to the inhabitants. The original caption explains: "Wortley once had the opportunity of getting its water laid on from the Wotton supply, refused. Now its spring has run dry and the parent parish must transport drinking water to its inhabitants every afternoon".
