Friday Bench (20) : Every Street in Manchester

These benches can be found at the end of Every Street in Manchester.

Let me clarify; not every street but the one Every Street that runs between Ashton New Road and Great Ancoats Street.

This "garden" consisting of two benches around a tub of flowers was probably erected in the run-up to the 2002 Commonwealth Games when the route to Sports City was "beautified".

My favourite benches discovered last week include Rune's at Kristiansand Zoo, Tom's in a local park, Barbara's at English Bay, Christchurch Photo Diary's in the Botanic Gardens and Baruch's alongside the Kohimarama Esplanade.


  1. Hi,

    Just dropping by. Thinking on how your days been.

    Wish I could 1 bench §;-) perfect for my backyard.

    Have a wonderful evening.

  2. I'm sorry to say that I feel that "beautification" scheme must have had a temporary goal - a follow on on the structures seems indicated.

    PS The names make me wonder - what is at the en on every street??

  3. These benches looks so lonely...
    My best regards :)

  4. It wasn't there when I worked in the area. I could have eaten my lunch on one of those benches.

  5. A wee garden at the end of every street would be lovely to go and sit awhile.
