View Of St Catherine's Chapel ~ Abbotsbury
Rural farm nestled in the shadow of St Catherine's Chapel .. the chapel was once a popular place of pilgrimage for girls seeking their true love.. many would visit the chapel on St Catherine's Day putting a knee in the lower hole and their hands in the other two 'wishing holes' and wish for the man of their dreams

A Husband, St Catherine,
A handsome one, St Catherine,
A rich one, St Catherine,
A nice one, St Catherine,
And soon, St Catherine
