EDIFICES ANCIENT AND NOT SO ANCIENT


So, who would like to try to tell 

Where we went out for tea? 

Or might proclaim to know quite well

This building’s century?

 

New Forest’s offered as a clue,

And let me make it clear

The edifice is much more new

Than it might here appear.

 

 

In Manor House in which we dined

A week or so ago

One is a great deal more inclined

Antiquity to know.

 

This one dates back a goodly spell,

To fifteenth century,

With structure still sound as a bell,

As one may plainly see.


‘Twas here we took granddaughter for

A celebration treat

Straight ‘A’s in GCSE saw

Us think it rather neat!


 

Her college days began today;

She thought it rather fun –

Her chosen workload far away

Would make me want to run!

  1. I’m going to kick myself for this..it looks really old….normally that’s 15-1600s…but this is a trick question, isn’t it, Col?
