Friday Bench: Remembrance

A timely find thanks to Philippa Burough via Twitter 🙂 You can see the original tweet + responses to it here.

I’ve also been looking into the soldiers’ stories commemorated in Pewsham’s street names this week. Chippenham must have one of the largest and most unusual war memorials in the country.

Friday Bench: Old Maudy

A suitable post for Friday the 13th?

Here’s a selection of benches from Chippenham station for us to view whilst I try and decide which one (if any) was the bench Old Maudy used to sit on.

I devised a ghost walk for Pewsham Belles WI this week and the railway station was our initial meeting place plus the spot for our first ghostly tale.

More on Old Maudy to come after I’ve distilled our walk and the tales we told into an interactive map.

Friday Bench: Private

A trip to London last Saturday was surprisingly lacking in benches until I arrived at my lunchtime destination. This was enough to interest me, then…

… my friends pointed out the bench was marked ‘Private’.

Private?!!!!??*@$*!!!!

It made them even more delighted to sit and pose for me! Thanks Sara and Alison 🙂

Friday Bench: At Foxham Horse Show

An improvised set of benches fashioned from some of the items used for the show jumping classes at Foxham Horse Show last weekend.

Unusually for a country show, most of the seating being used were the hundreds of horses entered for the various classes held in 9 show rings on the day.

Lined up, the jump components are reminiscent of nearby Maud Heath’s Causeway at Kellaways, which I drove past on the way to the showground.
