William Sears Memorial Bench

April 21, 2017

William Sears oversaw the building and garden works in the 1930s from his office which is now the Gardener’s Hut above the Italian Garden.

These broken pieces have been carefully incorporated by a skilled stone mason to recreate the bench. William Sears’s granddaughter Edwina has been along to admire the result.
