I have just finished making and installing replacement benches for the stunning grounds of Melbourne Hall. The 2 semi circular perching seats sit elegantly either side of the lake in the grounds of the Melbourne Hall Estate in South Derbyshire. Fragments of the old stone seats were reassembled to help to recreate the original design. Each seat consists of 24 component sandstone parts which are glued, pinned and mortared together. The house is occasionally open to the public, mainly over the summer months so those wishing to view them will be able to do so.
