It has been claimed that Cecil Francis Alexander wrote her "All things
Bright and Beautiful" whilst staying at the Govilon manor house and
inspired by her surroundings. The refrain "The purple headed mountains,
The river running by," referring to the Sugar Loaf and Blorenge mountains
and the River Usk.
This arrangement was made for Brass band by Simon Kerwin, especially for
the film “Brassed Off”, and is used at the scene where Brighouse and
Rastrick where playing at the finals at the Albert Hall.
