Church bench

Armagh CofI bench

Bench on slope below east façade, St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral, Armagh, Northern Ireland (last May).

For me, the feet seem heavy compared to the seating surface of this bench.

And the form/materials are nothing like the gothic-revival style of the cathedral, which was built in the mid-1800s to mimic/echo the much earlier original gothic style.

I like the bench, and would be happier with it in a modern setting.

Sorry, no celestial adventure today.

    If the bench and church remains are still there 3 or 4 hundred years from now it could make for a really interesting contrast and conversation.
