Mick, had to scroll down and knew who`d taken this photo on seeing the bike !!. Most unusual seat, did you take a photo of the info plate?
There`s a very long seat in the Eden Project in Cornwall made entirely out of approx.60 car tyres.

What does the sign say?

Comment by: dirty harry on 20th September 2012 at 09:37

i think the sign says "free fire wood on a first come first serve" and a free bike to help you get home.

The plaque says 'Whoever uploads a photograph of this seat on to W W Photo a Day will be'...seriously it states....
The Hermitage
This area was the site of a large house provided by the Standish family for Catholic priests who served their chapel at nearby Standish Hall from about 1838 and from 1884 at St Maries church. In 1908 it was replaced by the new presbytery adjoining the church.

Marina is expecting so she cant ride her bike at the moment.

Comment by: Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 21st September 2012 at 09:26

I think it must have been by divine intervention.
