Remembrance weekend

A Great Weekend for Bench photos this Remembrance weekend. The standard of photographs Tweeted by #BenchFans just blows me away.

Here’s just a sample of last weekends shots.  …..

Sutton Bank, North Yorkshire.

This Photograph was Tweeted by Dave Zdanowicz or @DazeZ_uk and is a great shot from one of the many benches at the top of Sutton Bank.

Down the bank in the distance is the market town of Thirsk the home of Television Vet James Herriot. I have sat on this Bench many times and wondered at the sight before me, Sutton Bank is the high point on the Hamilton Hills with extensive and beautiful views over the Vale of York. James Herriot claimed the views to be the ‘Best views in England’.

Why not Check out Dave’s Website :- You will love his Photographs and Blogs



This lovely photo was taken and Tweeted by Gill Barlow @GillyB04  and shows a great Bench and view of the Norfolk Coast near Sheringham .

This unusual building is certainly a great place to visit in the City of Hull. The Deep is a huge aquarium with thousands of sea creatures including Sharks and Swordfish. The stunning marine life will keep the family entertained for hours  ( This pic was Tweeted by one of my favourite contributors Andrew Locking @andrewswalks. A lovely sunrise shot with the benches lining up awaiting their customers.

Why not check out Andrews website at :-  His Photographs and Walking Diary is brilliant.

How about this for a cracking view across Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Swaledale is on the east side of the Pennines and is the dale of the River Swale. This photo was Tweeted by Kevin Cook or @YorkshireinCol1. I love the colours in this shot


Grinton Moor, Swaledale.

This is a lovely picture complete with Sheep Heather and of course a very wet Bench. Again Kevin Cook or @YorkshireinCol1 Tweeted this breathtaking photograph which captures just how wet it can get up on the moor. I do love the shine on the bench and I bet it’s a lovely place to enjoy your picnic lunch when the sun decides to shine again. One thing that always make me laugh about Grinton is that its just a lovely little village but it has a really big church which is called ‘The Mother Church of St Andrews’.

Did you know that Grinton means ‘Green Pasture’ in old English.



We cannot get very far without a beautiful photograph of Scarborough and here’s last weekends. This shot was Tweeted by Jennifer Taylor or @FOXY3282 and shows the lovely curve of the Scarborough sea front. You can also see the Iconic Grand Hotel were my parents stayed on a couple of occasions.


How about this for a view? Jane Hambrook or @jedijane18 tweeted this lovely view of Portree on the Isle of Skye. I don’t know about you but I could just sit here for hours.

We can’t go a weekend without an international Bench and this weekends Bench was Tweeted by Mick Dickison or @mickdickison And shows the sunny paradise of Bridgetown, Barbados. I would just love to sit there with a large Rum and Coke. 😊😊



Thanks again to all that contributed last weekend I do appreciate all your efforts.
