The lead singer of Prefab Sprout, Patrick 'Paddy' McAloon who's home town of Langley Park lies about 2 miles away from Bearpark seems to have been inspired by Bearpark enough for him to write this song about it.

Many thanks to www.prefabsprout.net for pointing me in the direction of this song.
Do you have any sugestions for video's like this. I have a few ideas myself but would love to hear yours.
