I know there have been treacle mine discussions in teh past but I didn't find this!

I found it elsewhere!

Anyone suggest a tune or recognise the meter that it may have been written for?

THE TADLEY MINING DISASTER

'Twas on the third day of July
And twelve strong men were about to die
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
They were working fast without a care
When a tunnel collapsed and trapped them there
At the Tadley treacle mines

No noise was heard above the ground
When evening came they couldn't be found
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
They searched it here, they searched it there
But could not find them anywhere
At the Tadley Treacle Mines

Then one man came from underground
And told them everything he found
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
I saw a tunnel blocked with clay
But it was open yesterday
At the Tadley Treacle Mines

Then all the men went down the pit
And tried to clear the earth a bit
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
They dug all night, they dug all day
And finally cleared the earth away
At the Tadley Treacle Mines

They found twelve men a-lying there
Upon the ground so cold and bare
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
They carried them to the light
So all could see the ghastly sight
At the Tadley Treacle Mines

They buried them there that very day
And to this day their bodies lay
At the Tadley Treacle Mines
So gentlemen take heed I pray
And do not go to work today
At the Tadley Treacle Mines

Some work of Lewis Carroll (or was it Edward Lear) clearly states that treacle comes from a treacle well. What about that?
