Scene 1: Peel Park, Sunday afternoon
Maggie and Will, walking out together, are seen by Alice and Vickey, who are appalled to be thus linked to a common boot hand. They resolve to tell their father what is going on.

Scene 2: The shop, Monday morning
Hobson, having learnt of Maggie's intentions, threatens 'to beat the love out of Will Mossop' with his belt, whereupon the unlikely couple leave the shop. They borrow £100 from Mrs Hepworth to set up a business on their own. Three weeks later, Hobson, dead drunk, accidently falls down the cellar trap into Beenstock's corn warehouse.
