Wordless Wednesday - Hawker's Hut

In 1843 the Reverend Stephen Hawker, the eccentric vicar of Morwnestow, founded the modern day Harvest festival service. He was also a poet, and wrote much of his poetry in this hut which he himself built into the cliff edge from timber salvaged from wrecks along the coast.

Wow...that's a pretty cool looking little hut there. Would be interesting to see what type of poetry was written in the earth!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the shots of my pre-teen drama queens!
