Friday Bench: Hampton Court

Hampton Court 10082009 034 (14)

This the Hampton Court in Herefordshire!

Just outside the more formal gardens is a wide open space with picnic benches. Nearby is this more inviting bench simply fashioned from felled timber from the estate. Judging by the scuffed area around it, it’s well used.

This is the nearest shop to where I live – just a few minutes walk away. In view of what’s sold there, ย I thought it’d be ironic to photograph it when it was closed.

However, it doesn’t seem to beย open during the day either. We need some new doors for downstairs, and wanting to support our nearest and local business popped along there to see what they have on offer. No-one was there when we went in apart fromย a man workingย in the adjacent workshop. Although we made ourselves known to him, he didn’t come into the shop to help us make a choice.

So we took our choice elsewhere to the not so local, national business in Swindon – B & Q – where a most helpful man who specialises in doors soon ordered just what we wanted.
