Cropthorne Walkabout committee
Here is a loverly poem written by Sue Millard who's daughter lives in the village to give you a flavour of our village:-
This ancient village on a gentle hill
With nooks and crannies where time has stood still The Avon rolling majestically by
The buzzards that circle in the sky,
The black and white timbers crowned with thatch with mullioned windows and doors that latch,
The pretty church with bells that ring
to summon those with hymns to sing,
The Sheppey with its swathe of green where flocks of sheep once set the scene, A beautiful village with much to give,
A special place where friendly folk live.
