Thread Name: Origin: Too Close to the Wind (Stuart Marson)
Subject: RE: Close to the Wind - any info?
I first heard it on a Dave Swarbrick - Simon Nichol album and I seem to remember there was a bit of background. I have the album at home and so will have a look - from memory the writer is a local schoolteacher to Culworth and I think that the song is based upon real events.

There's quite a lot of information here which may (or may not) be relevant: Culworth gang info

Great song.
