Purpose:

A bench located near our gallops had become weathered and unusable. Our staff through their own initiative refurbished this bench which is used by many in the local community to sit a view the horses or enjoy the view of the gallops later in the day. This bench was not our property but it meant a lot to local people to see it restored.
