10 EXT. UPPER LIGHTHAZELS FARM. DAY 15. 13.00 10
ASHLEY (plus another LAD in the passenger seat) drives an
open-backed wagon (laden with bags of sand) up to the
farmhouse. There are a couple of men working on the site.
ASHLEY steps out. The LAD goes and opens up the back of the
wagon and starts unloading the sacks, one by one, just as
TOMMY and LEWIS used to. JULIE happens to be heading out of
the house and over to the Evoque, dressed for work. Her face

JULIE heads off and slams into her Evoque.

TOMMY’s taking shelter under a canal bridge along the tow
path. He inhales deeply on a cigarette. He sees the narrow
boats parked all along the canal bank, all of them closed up

deserted. TOMMY flicks his fag into the canal, pulls his
collar up, and walks along the tow-path.
