Froxfield: St Peter on the Green
High winds? who knows? but when the tree fell,
the old Froxfield chapel tumbled as well;
and when the remains were moved to High Cross,
those close to the Green lamented their loss.
For twenty-five years they thought it a sin —
then providence came out of Nicholson's Gin
when, family fortune providing the means,
a second St Peter's arose on the Green.
