Memorial Benches

I decided to dedicate a blog to memorial benches. These have provided me with endless inspiration. I’ve even thought I should write a non fiction book about them.

The pictures below show one of my favourite memorial benches at Witley Court in Worcestershire. I once wrote a poem about this gentleman that eventually morphed into a novel. The strange thing is that I misread his name the first time I recorded it, but, in a way, this feels better, because I haven’t actually used his name for my writing.

The following method has now worked many times :-

  1. I sit on a memorial bench,
  2. read the inscription,
  3. let my mind wander, and
  4. record any inspiration for use in novel, short story or poem.

Try it!
