A new novelty bench has been installed in Bonchurch. Set at a steep angle, those who choose to sit on it are guaranteed a cosy encounter with anyone else sitting on the bench.
Thrills and spills
For the full thrills, ride it by yourself.
Simply place yourself on the upper end of the bench – seconds later you’ll have had a ride of a lifetime as you reach the end of the slide/bench.
Head to Bonchurch
To take part on the novel ride simply head down to Shore Road, close to the public car park.
It’s free to ride too!
Our thanks to Gordon Payne for alerting us to the bench. After he sent some photos over (see below), we couldn’t resist testing it out ourselves.
