This is a Three-Two I composed to go after Kenneth’s Bridge, another self-comp. which I entered here fairly recently.
It’s called after a small cluster of buildings across the river from the west end of Frosterley village in Weardale, County Durham, northern England. Formative periods of my life have been spent round there; my life is accordingly formless. Large sea-trout lurk in the river, but not nearly as large as the sessioners who have been known to lurk in a nearby pub.
“Kenneth’s Bridge” ~ 3/2
Key signature: D Major

(last quaver of the tune, first time round, is meant to be F#, not B.)
Bridge End (now it’s a 3/4…)
I realise now that this tune is a fast 3/4, not a 3/2 as I first submitted it. Nor does it gain from the second part being played twice. So I’ve re-posted it below in ABC, with each part being played through once:
