Magpies in Picardy

We have started adding images to the wheels of Ebenezer's Bike at Stourhead.  These are words taken from the poem "Magpies in Picardy" by Theodore Percival Cameron Wilson published in the Westminster Gazette in 1916 . Captain Wilson was killed on the western front in March 1918. He was a forebear of Anthony Wilson, one of the Scraptors. We are adding more images to the wheels reflecting family memories
contributed in the workshop. There is space still for some more if you contact us. Address above.
