Landscape Advice Note: Commemorative Benches
By Alan Cathersides
It is common in public parks and other open spaces to find ‘Commemorative’ (or memorial) benches – seats dedicated to the memory of a person or people who particularly liked the park or open space in which the bench stands. Less frequently benches may sometimes commemorate significant personal events such as 25th or 50th wedding anniversaries or important national events such as a Royal jubilee.
This Landscape Advice Note provides an overview of how to formulate a policy for commemorative benches in historic gardens and landscapes.
