Teacher Bench

Sometimes you come across a bench and you're just desperate to know the story behind it. This must have been a very special teacher.

London Oasis Bench

Just behind St Martin's Church in London there's a spot where, if you get the timing right, you can sit and watch members of the Chinese community practice Tai Chi. You could even join in, and to be honest, these benches aren't the most comfortable!

In-joke Bench

These benches, where you just know the inscription is very personal, are some of my favourites. I noticed I named this 'Bossy bench' when I saved it, but I think Terry would have been the first to share the joke!

These benches, obviously in spots where the dog had loved to walk, feel so personal. I can't help wondering if the owner still comes here and sits. I hope so.
