Our first bench of 2018 is a Guest Bench from my ever reliable friend Lu. I love the muted moody blues of this scene reflecting the stormy end we had to 2017, which then leached through into the New Year.
Another guest bench from dear friends Steve and Lu in Totnes, who told us about the flooded bench when we visited them much earlier this year.
This bench is near the other, less soggy riverside benches featured from Totnes thus far.
Wiltshire had national media attention recently with the flooding in both Malmesbury (5 miles away to the north) and Bradford on Avon (10 miles away to the south-west) featuring in the news bulletins. Chippenham is on the same river and was relatively trouble free. However, this picture from Christmas Eve shows we didn’t escape unscathed.
