A seat with a story...


When i started my new job at Archerfield 4 months ago i was and still get a buzz out of using your imagination and getting creative with new ideas,  some of these ideas have already been posted on here like the big picture frame. The first week at work at Archerfield i came across a vintage Ransomes potato Ridger plough left to rust in the undergrowth of the wood beside the old Curling pond. Who knows how long this old Agricultural implement has been lying abandoned here?, 
I thought it would make a cool seat and something a bit different  for visitors to see, Work mate Drew and i dragged it out of the woods with the little tractor and back at the workshop over the winter soaked it in oil and beavered away removing the centre arm for the 3 point linkage and used this for support legs and back support for some lovely old hardwood planks which we soaked in oil to bring out the grain of the wood.  Adding a headboard from an original Archerfield Walled Garden sign we bolted the wood onto the frame that had been sanded and painted Ransomes Blue. Today was the big reveal and we moved it along to take it`s position at the end of the central path in the Walled Garden for visitors to sit and soak up the garden scenery and coming seasons sunshine...
