Bench series #47

For the month of November I’m looking for a bench with either a message OR  an Autumnal theme

(any kind of writing will do, it could be a message, a plaque, a dedication or even a map)

Latin; literally 'hear the other side'.
audi partem alteram – bench in Bishop’s Castle Shropshire

The Latin maxim audi alteram partem, one of the most cherished and sacrosanct principles of law, has evolved from three simple Latin words to mean that no person shall be condemned, punished or have any property or legal right compromised by a court of law without having heard that person. Literally – “listen to the other side”

…and no, I don’t know why the words on this bench are in the incorrect order.

If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at my Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it Bench Series: November
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in December.

My Picks of the Week:

First off, Debbie brings us a bench with history, as does Anabel whilst Violetsky has a poignant message this week and Eklastic finds a sad memorial. Whoever Charles was, I love his curvy bench, brought to you by Kaz, and then there is a trio of autumnal benches by Jo, Majka and Gilly. And a bench with its own phone number? Perhaps you have to ring ahead to reserve a seat 😉
And finally a bit more Gaelic from Elaine “O sit closer and let us sing a song”
(There seems to be quite a few Scottish links this week – even from the USA)

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the other links within the comment section.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
