Chasewater Railway Museum – Bench refurbishment

Museum Bench refurbishment

One of the Museum exhibits is an old Railway Station waiting room bench.

This is a North Staffordshire Railway item, purchased from a sale in Stoke-on-Trent in the 1960s

Having seen heavy use over the many years of its life, the fabric covering was badly worn, exposing the horsehair filling.

Using the money generated from the ” bench fund” table situated outside the museum room, the bench has been recovered and re sprung.
