Please Be Seated!

Roger says “Having been involved with supporting West House and the Heath Robinson Museum development for many years, I was delighted to be asked about making the bench and happy to have helped the volunteer team respond to visitor requests in this way.”

You asked: we answered: the Heath Robinson Museum has a new bench for visitors….

Roger Pattenden, for almost 20 years an expert D&T technician at Pinner’s Nower Hill School, brings his specialist craftsmanship skills to our lovely museum, making this fabulous new bench for the visitors to our galleries.

Constructed from pine to complement the styling of part of the gallery ceiling, our brand new bench is available for selfies from this Thursday, 15 June… The bench is finished in Danish oil, which Roger says is different from ordinary varnish in that it gives the bench a stylish sheen: “a bit of a glow”, he explains.

The museum team has been trying out the bench with Roger as you can see here and we are thrilled to receive it and settle it into its new home in our gallery.
