The Grapes, Pease Pottage

A wagon can be seen at the left of the picture and a close study seems to reveal that the four horses are all connected in line with chains. Perhaps the load is heavy and has had to negotiate Pease Pottage hill. The pitch is not so steep today due to an embankment next to the cottages at the bottom of the hill. You can see the original dip in the road on picture #367.
No doubt the owner of the smart horse and carriage at the front door is having a more relaxing day!
The Large Version link shows a close-up of the men and horses.
