25th August 2019 

I didn't see Lord Zarquon this week, he was due to come over to see me on Monday but I wasn't feeling very well so we cancelled meeting up. A few years ago I recorded Camilla Joyce singing on my song about the Richard III Society. I thought I had lost that recording but found it last month and I gave it to Lord Zarquon earlier this month. He tells me he has mixed and mastered this recording and I will be interested to hear how it sounds. Because I didn't see him on Monday he wasn't able to bring over the new master of the recording.

I have recently written two new songs and one of the them is about the Stover canal between Bovey Tracey and Newton Abbot. Here are some of the lyrics

TRANSPORTING GRANITE AND BALL CLAY

TO HACKNEY MARSH OVER MANY A DAY

A ONCE THRIVING INDUSTRY

THE OLD REMAINS FOR US TO SEE


ALONG THE PATH THE WILD FLOWERS

I COULD WALK FOR HOURS AND HOURS

AND DREAM OF DAYS OF A DISTANT PAST

OF SO MANY THINGS THAT DO NOT LAST


BEYOND TEIGNGRACE TO VENTIFORD

THE CANAL MAY BE RESTORED

THE SAD REMAINS OF INDUSTRY

JAMES TEMPLER'S LEGACY
