The Burning of Old Bartle

Saturday 22nd August 2015

West Witton, nr Leyburn, North Yorkshire

The Doggerel

On Penhill Crags he tore his rags

Hunters Thorn he blew his horn

Cappelbank Stee happened a misfortune and brak' his knee

Grassgill Beck he brak' his neck

Wadhams End he couldn't fend

Grassgill End we'll mak' his end


Shout, lads, shout!
