Heybridge Basin (Essex)
Friday March 4th 2016 saw me arrive at morning’s early light at Heybridge Basin in Essex. The bench was transferred to a 4WD pick-up together with the necessary tools and after a 1km drive on a muddy track we arrived at the location on the sea wall. The bench was secured in position. A most beautiful position on a coastal path and a favourite spot of the couple for whom the bench had been commissioned. The couple had passed away within 4 days of each other in March 2015.
One more beautiful bench created and delivered at very short notice by those who care.
The last photo is of a bench made by us 9 years ago and installed a few hundred metres away from the new bench. It is in excellent condition despite having received very little maintenance over the years.
