Rolling Garden Benches | An Antique Finally Reproduced in England







The last picture is my dream rolling garden bench scanned from one of my out-of-print books. The three new ones above are available from Andrew Crace, English Garden Furniture. A nice reader of my blog bought one in England (he lives there) and forwarded the site to me. I have such nice subscribers! I can't even imagine how much it would cost to ship one to my house. Maybe they will send me one in exchange for this free advertising. HaHa ~ another thing to dream about. Click on the first link to read my original post with some history of the antique bench. Click on the second link to learn more about the fabulous bespoke reproductions. These are not designed to roll about with people sitting in them. The wheelbarrow design makes them easy to move so you can mow under them. I still want one before I die. Rosemary

I loved this bench when you first featured it Rosemary & love it even more now! Oh wait on, is that that sound of the Courier driver's van pulling up outside the Cottage with your freebie rolling garden bench on board?!

I never knew such a thing existed before--but it makes sense and what a good idea!
I love the first one best--slightly Asian design and it looks the most comfortable to me.

Greetings fron snowy Canada.My first blog ever. Really enjoyed the rolling bench images. So my old steel wheelbarrow wheel will be put to use as I construct one of these benches using your Blog as a resource. Thanks so much. Bill Loney
