Town Seats and Benches

The need for new seats and benches arose out of the Initiative's Healthcheck research carried in 2004.

To date a total of 19 new seats and three new benches have been given to the town by the Initiative. Nine seats were placed in Market Place, four in the High Street, three at Swan Meadow, one in Abbey Lane, one in George Street and one in Jubilee Gardens, as well as two benches in Swan Meadow Coach Park and one bench on Common Hill. These were funded by grants from Action for Market Towns and Uttlesford District Council and co-ordinated by the Saffron Walden Initiative.
