The longest bench…

The longest seat in the world to be made from sustainable Accoya is progressing well at Oxford Planters & Joinery. It is being made for the peace garden we have designed to commemorate the WW1 Armistice at the Thiepval memorial near Amiens in Northern France.

The seat includes elements of Welsh Oak and Portland stone reflecting our remit to reflect the sacrifice of Welshmen that lost their lives as well as the stone that isused in the Thiepval memorial. This isn’t a memorial garden though, it is a peace garden and a place to reflect on what we can all do in the future to bring peace.

The garden will be installed in late September and opened by President Macron in early November.
