The Cherry Tree

The Cherry Tree at the turn of the last century

The Cherry Tree today

The Cherry Tree was aptly named,
No guesses as to why,
For all around it orchards grew
With fruit for cherry pie.

A photograph of happy men,
All clothed in fancy dress,
Belies the fact that way back then
They suffered much distress.

The Boer War took our local boys,
And some remain unknown,
This image shows the village joy
Of those who made it home.

The Cherry Tree has been part of this village for a very long time and has seen many changes, from pub to wine bar to bar and restaurant.
