Crowden, Derbyshire: Charles Sagar died 8 August 2003

I found this bench while walking around Crowden in Derbyshire on a spring day.  We had come looking for Hares and were lucky enough to see one racing across the hillside.

The bench commemorates Charles Sagar, who died aged 71 years on 8 August 2003.  The dedication reads, ‘Absent from the body, at home with his Lord’, a quote from the bible (2 Corinthians 5:8).

The bench has a lovely view to stop and enjoy, overlooking the Torside and Woodhead reservoirs and the recently planted memorial forest.

Crowden: the bench erected in memory of Charles Sagar and the view over the valley.
