Remembrance Day 11.11.2018    bells

“The vane on Hughley Steeple

      Veers bright, a far known sign,

And there lie Hughley people,

      And there lie friends of mine.

Tall in their midst the tower

      Divides the shade and sun,

And the clock strikes the hour

And tells the time to none…”
