Heavy snow had prevented provisions being delivered to Blackshaw Head, so this team is delivering 'relief' supplies to Blackshaw Head Co-op. They have come up Ragley and have just passed Hudson Mill on the way to the Devil's Elbow.
Looking across Mytholm to the Steeps up to Blackshawhead. In the foreground the canal and towpath and centre right Mytholm Hall is just visible. In the foreground Stubbings Holme Dyeworks and above it Brown's factory, both now long gone.
