Long Description:
In Memory of Farmer Keith.

A wrought iron bench showing a 'farming scene' of cattle in a field. In the arm rests is a cider press and the other a flagon of cider. Across the back the words 'In Memory of Farmer Keith'.

The reason it is here is a sad one. A local news article is here (visit link) . And a later BBC news article here (visit link) .
