Stonebow House, poetic: in three words


Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey on Stonebow House. When I was compiling the display sheets of your comments to send to Helen Graham for the event I thought they were rather poetic. So I assembled a poem.

It’s in the tradition of the ‘found poem’. Your 3 word summaries of Stonebow House rearranged.

I’ve also assembled a commemorative PDF version below, which you can download and keep. Isn’t that exciting.

Maybe we could set it to music and get a choir to sing it, like Ebor Vox a few years ago? Maybe not.

Alternatively, have a look through the same text rearranged and enhanced with fancy fonts:
