Long English 19th Century Wood and Wrought Iron Railway Station Bench

About

This amazing railway station bench originated from the Barcombe Mills train station in Lewes, East Sussex, which was opened in 1858 and closed in 1965. Made of oak and probably larch, the bench features its original wrought iron frame and most of its original wood. When we first discovered it, there were a few spots of rotting wood and a partially missing slat that were restored with wood from another nearly-identical bench, also from Barcombe Mills. The bench is in very good antique condition overall and covered in lichen. There are a few very minor cracks to the wood shown in the photos that do not impair its functionality or longevity in any way. We have left it sporting its original surface, but the iron could be sandblasted and re-painted to your custom specifications, and the wood could also be painted. We can also coat the wood with a penetrating water repellant to extend its longevity (for a modest up-charge). At 13 feet in length, it would make a true statement in a large garden, perhaps at the end of an allée or overlooking a scenic view. A very rare piece of history, indeed!
