Pinetum Benches

150114 Bench Area 3All sponsorships are for a ten year period, throughout which time we will guarantee the upkeep of your bench or picnic table. If an existing bench in one of the locations listed below is more than 2 years old, it may be replaced by a new bench upon sponsorship. An example of the new bench design is shown here. Please contact us for more information. We cannot guarantee a new bench upon sponsorship, but we will ensure your bench remains in good condition throughout the ten year sponsorship period.

For the duration of your sponsorship, a brass plaque will be attached to the bench or to the side of the picnic table showing your dedication.

The following benches and picnic tables are ready for sponsorship now. A limited number of additional locations may be made available in future, so if you have a specific location in mind, please contact us to discuss.

Bench B2

The short walk up a steep, grassy path to this bench is well worth the effort for the resulting view of the Visitor Centre and its lake framed by the Pinetum and forest.  Imagine yourself sitting here in the spring sunshine enjoying the magnificent display of cherry blossom along the Cherry Tree Avenue.

Bench B28 & B29

Tucked away on a grassy path leading up to the Glory Hole there is a pair of benches. When sponsored, both the existing benches would be removed to make way for a single new-style bench.

It is a beautiful and quiet place, ideal for keeping an eye out for Bedgebury's rare and wonderful crossbills feeding on pine cones in the tree tops, or for enjoying a moment of quiet tranquillity. In springtime, the adjacent Glory Hole is a wonderful place filled with colourful, flowering azaleas and rhododendrons.

A new-style bench has just been installed near to the end of Lady Mildred's Carriage Drive, an iconic location in Bedgebury's history and lined with some of the oldest trees in the Pinetum.

Enjoy the magnificent avenue of Lawson cypress trees to your left or leave the Pinetum by the gate to your right and head into the forest for a short walk to either peace and solitude in some of the quieter parts of the forest or to have fun with the children in Bedgebury's play areas. This bench has only recently become available for sponsorship and will be a popular choice!

Bench B53

Have you discovered the new ‘Juniper Path’ in Bedgebury's Pinetum? The Juniper Path winds its way up from Bedgebury's iconic redwoods to the infamous Dove Ridge, the top ridge that joins the centre of the Pinetum at one end to the children's play areas a kilometre away at the other. At the base of this new path is an alcove that is ready for a stunning new-style bench.

Located just a few minutes' walk from the Visitor Centre and easily accessible on hard paths, you will be able to enjoy fine, close-up views of the peaceful Redwood Grove from this bench.

Could this be the special bench for you or a loved one?
