David Bryant, retired Crewkerne baker, local author and keen historian recently came across a delightful poem about Crewkerne which he has shared with us.
It is attributed to B. Eves (Copyright) 1930 (Under Royal Patronage) and here is just one of the verses:
Gay gardens with their clustered flowers
Are seen round everywhere,
With Roses, Stocks and Columbines,
And Sweet Rosemary there.
Elsewhere in poem, the Town Hall, the Church and The George are mentioned, as well as the dairies and tannery
and the weaving and shirt making trades.
Do let us know if you have any information on, or connection with the author Mr Eves.
