A painted steel bench created for the village green in Eyam, Derbyshire. The village is famous as the plague village and the bench references the story of how the plague arrived in Eyam via cloth ordered from London by a travelling tailor during the plague of 1666. This piece is a collaboration with writer Lucy Banwell who worked with groups of village school children and older residents to gather stories and poetry that would influence the text work on the bench.
