Steely Seating

Reclaimed Materials Given A Function

Along the stretch of the local Coast to Coast cycle route, there are a number of arty installations, such as this seating area which has been made from steel girders pile driven into the ground. Old railway sleepers top off the reclaimed steelwork, for the seating area. For those that place their derrieres upon the seat, impressive views are offered up of the St. Bees valley.

I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree, past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree.
