Little Wenlock

Spending a long weekend in Much Wenlock, one days walk was up The Wrekin, via the village of Little Wenlock.  Just outside the village, I stumbled upon two memorial benches by the footpath, both with excellent views across the Shropshire countryside.

The first is to John William Jones (Billy) and we are told that he was a hill walker.

The second is in memory of David G Hutchison, born in 1945 and died in 1999.

Searching afterwards, I found that these two benches are just two of a series of memorial benches around Little Wenlock that make up the Tom Pickering Bench Walk.  The link below will take you to a map of the eight benches in the walk, each dedicated to a different person.  Frustratingly for me, there is no further information about the people the benches are commemorating.  However, I am excited about the idea of a walk joining up different memorial benches.
