Cambridge Park & Town Benches

The Cambridge Cast Iron Park Benches with Hardwood Slats.

The Cambridge Park Benches were designed for the St Ives Town's environment, with styled reference points. The old cattle market, now a car park, was the central economic wealth creator of this Rural Market Town. The 4 Bulls' heads, in a cross, are still used in the Town Council Crest today, Although the farming in this area of Cambridgeshire is mainly arable. The legs of the seat splay out to symbolise the bull's legs, and the central bank of the bench-end is the Quadra-foils representing both the C of E & Free Church faiths central in its roll in this part of East Anglian Society. The ring bands, around the foils, are the ties that hold this tight-knit community together.

The English Rose is incorporated in the bench end. The heavy duty nature of the bench end reinforces the stability of the St Ives Town. The `Restoration Page' shows some work we have completed at the old cattle market.
