The story was that some travellers were on the way to a carriage-driving event. A vital part had broken, so one member had gone off in a taxi to get a replacement. Meanwhile the horse enjoyed a break in Burgess Park. The wagon can be seen to the left of the horse's tail.

Burgess Park :: TQ3377

Burgess Park, in inner South East London, is unusual as it is a large park created on a "brownfield" site.

The area was previously occupied by streets, houses and light industry as well as a branch of the Surrey Canal. Plans to create a park here started in the 1940s. At the time, there was very little green open space in this part of inner city London.

The park gradually grew, but in rather haphazard fashion with decaying, abandoned roads still cutting into the park. In 2011-2012 the park closed for about a year so that major work could be done to regenerate the park.
