The Doctor's
Straight Bit

Location of the doctor's surgery
(picture from SWOP website)

As it looks today

This surgery was once a hut,
Green painted so they say,
Another one, quite similar,
Was down old Sedgmoor way.
‘Twas here the doctors practised
And helped both rich and poor
But only wealthy Flackwell folk
Would have them at their door.
No NHS back then of course
To help you cure your ills,
You managed with your potions
If you couldn’t pay for pills,
But legend seems to have it
That the doctors played their part
Helping those who could not pay
With generous open hearts.

Until recently, this was the home of Cherrymead Surgery.
