A Catalogue of Dedicated Benches

Whilst wandering around Christchurch Park in Ipswich, Suffolk I noticed that around 2/3rds of the wooden benches were inscribed as a memorial to some one or an event - so I have decided to photograph and catalogue them- and perhaps find out a bit more about the people and history of Ipswich along the way!

Still Near Henley Road

Yvonne Warrington must have been an animal lover, as not only did she ask for donations to the Blue Cross, but her bench has a pair of tigers engrave in it as well as ' In memory of Yvonne Warrington 1928-2014'. 

This bench has not one, but two brass plaques on it to commemorate both the 75th and 125th anniversary of the Boys Brigade in 1958 and 2008. They were presented by the Ipswich & District Battalion.
