Covered seat in Market Place


I recently posted a picture of the Canopy covering the seat in the Market Place.

Kaz asked if the Bradford & Bingley, visible in the background, was still going. It is and as far as I know the B&B is still a building society. This picture which shows the whole seat is taken from outside the B&B and now we have the Halifax in the background. That used to be a building society but is now a bank.

The seat itself is relatively modern and not actually attached to the shelter, so it is quite probable that the latter was originally a tram-stop shelter, but perhaps not quite in its present location.

Funnily enough I saw B&B only a few days later. I may go and check them out as I'm fed up with banks - especially the one beginning with B that took over The Woolwich.

I love this shelter - nice enough to eat your sandwich on a sunny day. Or would the smokers congregate there?

I'd not noticed that the seat was not a part of it, and I have sat on there many times.
It is a very good seat to 'people watch' from. My only complaint is that sometimes theres an awful cooking smell from that equally awful 'Gabbatts'.

Hi Hyde,
Double benches, good for when there's not enough space, I like that design,when it was a Tram-stop shelter...

I'm just wondering :) when you're sitting on the wrong site,... You'll probably miss the tram :) haha!

Greetings JoAnn from Holland :)

What a charming shelter. Wish they were everywhere. Unfortunately, many of our bus stops lack shelters, so waiting for a ride sometimes involves standing in the rain or snow. Bless the shelter builders!
