Stagecoach on Handcross Hill

The same crossroads as picture #83 with Handcross to the left and Brighton to the right. The stagecoach is fully laden with the coachman ready to give a blast on the long post-horn as it approaches the Red Lion. What the fellow on the bike is doing is not clear, but the leading horse, although not attached to the stagecoach, has a horse collar ready to assist with the long haul up Handcross Hill.
