Here is a poem I found that has been attributed to John Dryden
Nor is thy Ston-Heng a less wonder grown,
Though once a Temple thought, now prov'd a Throne.
Since we, who are so bless'd with Monarchy,
Must gladly learn from thy Discovery,
That great Respects not only have been found
Where Gods were Worshipp'd, but where Kings were Crown'd
We the went on to Salsbury Cathedral, another fantastic experience, I don't know how many photos I took, so many.
Then on to Church Knowle in Dorset where we were spending the night at Badle Farm, and no we didn't book ahead!
We are covering a lot of territory each day but oh what experiences we are having, I love it and am having such a good time!
Bradle Farm, with hosts Gillian and John Hole, is a working farm and is in a valley three miles west of Corfe Castle. The Purbeck Hills surround the farm and part of the farm has been officially recognised as a of a natural World Heritage site which includes the Purbeck coast.
The original farmhouse and land are mentioned in the Doomsday Book before being destroyed by fire in the early 1800's. The present farmhouse was built in the 1840's with local Purbeck stone, still retaining much of the character and style of the original.
M was very interested in the farm, they farm 550 acres and have two dairy herds, sheep and corn.
