The Bargemaster (Chigley) by Gordon Murray and Freddie Phillips (1969) Chugging along between banks of green willow, Buttercup meadows, sweet nettle and dock, Sheep in the meadow so peaceful and still-o, And just round the bend we reach Camberwick Lock. Nothing is better than being at large In charge of a gay inland waterway barge The sun on the water is glinting and Soon we are leaving the Camberwick Lock Pass by the anglers all drowsily dreaming And far in the distance chimes Trumpton town clock Nothing is better than being at large In charge of a gay inland waterway barge This is from the animated children's programme from the 1960s called 'Chigley'. This was the third in a trilogy, following on from 'Camberwick Green' and 'Trumpton'. One of the characters was Mr Rumpling, the bargee, who worked the Trumpton canal, mainly carrying crates to Treddles wharf. This was his song. For more information visit the Trumptonshire Web.
