Second Prize, 12 and Under
Burton is 11 years old and lives in Hele Bay,
North Devon. He attends West Buckland School and
enjoys reading and playing the cello.
Manning's Pit is treasured by all,
Angry men want to build on it,
"Never take it"we all say,
Never take our precious place.
It will be a big loss
None of us would like it to go,
Go away we don't want you here!
Slither away to your small home.
People would mourn if it went
If you don't go away we will be distraught.
Tuesday, Wednesday and more,
Will not be with Manning's Pit no more.
