Bench Series: September – metal


For the month of September, Jude at Travel Words has asked us to share metal benches.

There are six identical metal benches around the war memorial in Callander, Perthshire.  The memorial was erected around 1920, dedicated to the men of Callander who lost their lives in the 1st World War and was later altered to include those who died in the 2nd World War.

  2. What a lovely tribute to the soldiers. I’m always in awe of people’s creativity.

  7. What a find, Elaine! So beautiful 🙂

  8. The benches were designed and manufactured by David Ogilvie Engineering in Kilmarnock, Scotland (sister company Ogilvie Site Furnishings are in Princeton, Ontatio).
    We are glad everyone likes these benches and hope everyone continues to enjoy them. It is an honor to be included in tributes such as this.

Now it's your turn
