Bench planting!

It's that time of year again - things really beginning to grow. And look! Here's a bench we planted yesterday. npc-bs5sml

The Newnham Church Bus Stop Bench, East Kent.

Fine weather pre booked for the planting of NPC-BS (Newnham Parish Council - Bus Stop) project.

Yes, it's a heavy piece. The following images give an insight into the installation process. Firstly is setting those beautiful cast leg bases into the banking.

The 1st image shows Sue Gunner of Newnham Parish Council with Murray at the ready just as the bus pulls away.

We even had a little helper - Peter,  who came along just at the right time to play the shapes game with the end caps.

You can just make out the stainless steel shim plates on top of the cast blocks as the seating board unit is set onto the bases.

Here's the start of a new project at the new workshop space in Sussex. These are the base cast moulds for the Newnham PC Bus stop seating.

The shutter moulds will be pour filled with smooth white finish concrete. You can see the top of the stainless steel stud mountings in the bottom of the mould (top of base block). The base elements will then be dug into and set into the the banking in front of the brick capped flint wall.
