Sir Hubert Parry's 'Jerusalem' inspired by neighbouring Shulbrede Priory

Less than a mile from the proposed site of the drilling rig is Shulbrede Priory, which dates back to 1200.  It was here that Sir Hubert Parry, inspired by the beautiful countryside on his doorstep, wrote the music to the hymn Jerusalem.

The unofficial ‘anthem’ of England. A tribute to the generations that have gone before us to preserve that ‘green and pleasant land’ for ‘England & St. George!’
