The Slope

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When they said New Mills I expected sails
it was more like miles and Chris Bonnington’s bile
up hill and down yonder dale, to the spire
looking smart in our MSR attire

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A new ground, nice people too, for sure
praying for a win would be my cold’s cure
if I said a slope you may think I am taking the rise
it’s more a large mound of Derby in Lancs disguise.



A new ground at New Mills
