    The clapperboard at the outset identifies this footage as being outtakes for material about the snooker player Alex "Hurricane" Higgins.

    It is therefore likely allied to clips 3406.18 and 3089.04.

    4:22 shows the canal barge along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal going under the Manchester Road bridge in Burnley, Lancashire towards the Burnley Wharf. Continuing eastwards at 5:01 is the reflection of Clock Tower Mill which was partially demolished following a fire in the late 1980's. The camera lifts to show the mill in full shot before passing under the Sandygate bridge with the now restored Slater Terrace just visible on the left.

    6:16 is Wallasey Town Hall on the bank of the river Mersey.
