Down by the harbour, in Minehead’s fair town

There’s song and there’s music, and joy to be found

Fresh air and clear water, fish swim in the sea

There’s peace and tranquillity for you and for me

Peace and tranquillity for you and for me.

 

The tide and the sands, and children at play

The gulls flying over, around the wide bay

For the people who live here and tourists alike

We’ve the hills that surround us, to walk or to hike.  

 

We have open spaces and comfortable homes

There are beautiful places on the moors and in towns

Some have retired here, their work nearly done

In loving this landscape, they are not alone.      

 

Young people are learning in college and schools

Families are growing and using the tools

Of technology and freedom for this lovely land

So let’s stand together – for peace all join hands.

 

Little acorns are growing into oaks tall and strong

We can be happy all our lives long

In goodwill and friendship to this land we belong

So let’s be at one now, and all sing along ….

 

For down by the harbour, in Minehead’s fair town

There’s song and there’s music, and joy to be found

Fresh air and clear water, fish swim in the sea

There’s peace and tranquillity for you and for me

Peace and tranquillity for you and for me.

    Absolutely lovely and how true. Have travelled to other scenic places but the views from the Zig Zag, Beacon/Burgundy roads and The Ball always take my breath away. Sometimes when it’s on your doorstep you take it for granted.
    Minehead is a beautiful peaceful community and this piece is a fitting homage to that sentiment.
