Two miles from wimborne town was canford manor school where lord and lady wimborne lived across the heath from Poole

where Churchill came to visit for they were his family and the king of england also came traveling in carriages of gold it said that he threw coins to newtown kids at least thats what I'm told cause they were good as gold

it was at canford magna its name was written in the book the history books tell it you just gotta look

there were lodges on the heath that time with rabbits by the score then the years flew past as Britain was at war

granfer rogers and his family built brickyard's on the moor the Luftwaffe bombed the heath that time they mistook the brickyard for holton heath near warehams door where ammunition was made this caused much grief

there were foxes warren upon the hills chickens on the farms but granfer had his six barrel plus lots of fancy new alarms

the Gypsy's sites were scattered around though some were diddy coy there was lots of open country then so good for girls and boys

flowers grew wild and free at hand with pine tree and the birch heather stretched across the land with poppies and sweet flowers young girls they gathered baskets young men they ferreted around the hills

old men they smoked their pipes canford was beautiful then before the cars and trikes
