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 lake and visitor centre 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 B28/29

This pair of benches is tucked away on a grassy path behind the Glory Hole. It is a beautiful and quiet place, ideal for keeping an eye out for our rare and wonderful crossbills feeding on the pine cones in the tree tops, or for enjoying a moment of quiet tranquillity. If sponsored, both the existing benches would be removed to make way for a single new-style bench.
