ABC Wednesday - S

S is for Seat

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin. Sometimes when walking through forests, you come across quirky little carvings done by the foresters. The forestier who did this near Geishouse was obviously of a more practical nature. But only room for one, whereas these two trees near the old Hincaster canal can accommodate four, and are very comfortable.

Purpose built with artistic flair, an unusual wooden seat near Wye.
Sometimes seats provide both rest and shelter as this one does on top of Pendle Hill
Certainly well built to withstand any storm, although the day this picture was taken was warm and sunny.
A bit of Scottish stone nicely placed so Ron can gaze at
Sueno's Stone. A 9th Century Pictish sculpture stone which has its own little (21 ft) glass case.
When you are waiting for a train at the Station a seat is always nice. These are the old Furness railway (1846-1923) seats, refurbished and still in use on Ulverston station.
I will be having ABC withdrawal next week as I am away, but wish you all you ABCers a terrific T day.

To see more SSSSSs go to Mrs Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday

Fascinating post! I love the rustic carved seats in the forest, but my favourites are the Pendle Hill stone circle seat, and the railway bench!

Superb seats - particularly fascinated by the Furness railway seats as they appeared to be quite whimsical... Very nice post - have a good minus T week!
