"Days Lock from Wittenham Clumps" By Luke Piper (now sold 29/5/12)

"Days Lock from Wittenham Clumps" By Luke Piper (now sold 29/5/12)




luke piper days lock

Luke has captured the ancient bronze age splendour of this magical area from the Wittenham Clumps Celtic Hill fort!! This whole area is steeped in history and legend!!

luke piper days lock 2

As up the hill with labr'ing steps we tread
Where the twin Clumps their sheltering branches spread
The summit gain'd at ease reclining lay
And all around the wide spread scene survey
Point out each object and instructive tell
The various changes that the land befell
Where the low bank the country wide surrounds
That ancient earthwork form'd old Mercia's bounds
In misty distance see the barrow heave
There lies forgotten lonely Cwichelm's grave.

Around this hill the ruthless Danes intrenched
And these fair plains with gory slaughter drench'd
While at our feet where stands that stately tower
In days gone by up rose the Roman power
And yonder, there where Thames smooth waters glide
In later days appeared monastic pride.
Within that field where lies the grazing herd
Huge walls were found, some coffins disinter'd
Such is the course of time, the wreck which fate
And awful doom award the earthly great.

Taken from the Poem Tree which is an Ancient Beech that is located on Castle Hill at Wittenham Clumps in Oxfordshire. The poem was carved into the Tree in the 1840s by Joseph Tubb. The tree died in the 1990s but was selected by the Tree Council as one of  50 Great British Trees!!!! This beautiful Poem was inspired by Tubb's fondness of the surrounding Landscape that Luke Piper has so beautifully represented!!!!! The "Ancient Earthwork" at "Mercia's bounds" from the Poem may be the Ridgeway or Grim's Ditch. At the time of Alfred the Great the then border between Mercia and Wessex (West Saxons) ran roughly in a line from east to west through this point!! The mention of Cwichelm's (or Culchelm's) grave refers to Scutchhamer Knob, a barrow on the Ridgeway near Grim's Ditch, approx 8 miles from the Poem Tree. The Barrow was originally known as Cwichelmeshlaew or Cwichelm's Barrow and is historically recorded as the site at which Cwichelm of Wessex was killed by Edwin of Northumbria in 636!!!. The Barrow can be seen in the misty distance!! On a clear day the Berkshire downs can be viewed. The "Smooth waters" of the River Thames refers to the river running through Dorchester -on-Thames where the Augustinian Dorchester Abbey is mentioned. The disenterred coffins may refer to an 18th Century discovery of 2 skeletons at the Summit of Round Hill, Wittenham Clumps!!!
