Title:  ‘Leaf to Leaf’ Seat  

Location:  Great Aycliffe Anniversary Walk, Newton Aycliffe, 1998

Materials:  Oak 

Description:  Based on the old idea of a ‘kissing’ seat the design uses the motif of an oak leaf for the backrests.  It is sited beneath a mature oak growing right next to the anniversary pathway and the name ‘Aycliffe’ means ‘clearing in an oakwood’.
