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!

The Reg Driver Building

Reg Driver played an important part in the recent history of the park and although he doesn't have memorial bench, he does have a building named after him!

There is also a triple bench near the building to commemorate the opening by HRH the Duke of Gloucester after the major restoration project on 7th July 2008. 

Set back from the path towards Christchurch Mansion is this bench for Majorie (Midge) Greaves 1913-2015
