Burnham Trading Company 5 Plank Open Wagon
Based in Burnham-on-Sea, the next seaside town down the coast from Weston-Super-Mare, the Burnham Trading Company supplied coal in the North Somerset area. Originally the Burnham Coal Company the change to the name quite possibly reflects diversification into aggregate products and building materials. The few photographs known of the Burnham wagons are all from the WC&P. Loads are possibly coal or aggregates from one of the quarries.
This wagon has been lettered for return to Weston Super Mare WC&PR, a wagon under the control of the companys' depot of agent in Weston.
