Hedge Mill


Hedge Mill before it was demolished

The area today


Hedge Mill, as such the name implies,
Was set in fields and open skies
And though the work was hard and rough
A farmer's life was also tough.
I'm not sure now which one I'd choose,
Fresh air and sun (but muddy shoes)
With little saved for rainy day
Or paper mill with better pay.

Hedge Mill is largely forgotten now but was once a prominent paper mill on the Wye.
