Friday Bench (13): Old Parsonage Gardens
This week's bench is one I discovered in the Old Parsonage Gardens at Didsbury, Manchester.
It was a hot day when I visited the gardens at the beginning of June. The outside of two nearby hostelries were thronged with lunchtime drinkers, but inside these gardens was quiet peace; a girl was reading a book nearby and a couple of blokes were looking at a laptop.
You can read more about this oasis on the Didsbury Civic Society website.
Benches I most enjoyed discovering last week include Tom's salvaged from the Great Western Railway, Yellerbelly's tattoed bench in Warsaw, PERB's at the grocery store, Naturegirl's in Ontario and Smarteyes's cozy bench in London.
