Stan the Stable Boy

The inspiration behind Stan was the first world war the poem describes him as a young boy who sae his Father go to fight in the war. Located near Duke’s lane.

The brambles have recently be cleared from around him:

Stan the Stable Boy

By Matt Black (

Stan looks after the horses.

They say Stan could ride before he could walk

;a gypsy, clever, quiet and shy,

and a good whistler.

Stan waved goodbyeto his father

who went to war.

His dad was a blacksmith who just turned the corner

and disappeared.

Stan tries to smile, to hide his tears,

but he’s lonely as rain.

Stan hardly gets any sleep.
