The Last Chain Home Tower - Poem by Christopher Tye

The Last Chain Home Tower

Still standing at Stenigot, is the last of the Chain Home Towers,
Still standing like a sleeping sentinel,
Still reaching into the sky towards the Heavens,
Still towering three hundred and sixty foot over the landscape,
Still keeping a silent watch over the skies of Lincolnshire,
Still visible for miles around, reminding people of their past,
Still standing as a memorial to the dark days of 1940,
Still reminding us of all the fallen of World War Two who gave their lives for us,
Still standing long after all its fellow towers have gone,
Still standing as a beacon of hope for the future,
Still standing anchored to its little spot of Lincolnshire,
Still standing silently after over seventy years have passed.
