My previous post started with a line of bollards; here's a line of benches
It's important to have seats but the reason for the alignment (beyond mirroring a decorative track) isn't clear to me - it's not a particularly social 'sit and chat with your mates' set up
To the left of the benches in the top picture there are more benches, mirroring the track as it winds its way up the road
Here's the view coming the other way. The track has swerved away from the road to allow a waiting space for a car that has turned off the road.
At the bottom of the road the track sweeps to the left, swinging on the pavement blindly around the corner, and to the right crosses the side road
though without the priority the adjoining main road enjoys.
Back to the benches - they've got lights in them
They're not svelte benches and I wonder how they'll age. Was the bench below considered stylish when installed?
Talking about dated stuff; how's this for an object lesson in how not to provide cycle parking?
Don't you love it when an urban realm composition comes together
Also in Mumbles, I was delighted, having just suggested a road train as a more cycle-friendly replacement to the RV1 bus along Belvedere Road and Upper Ground in London, to find an actual example (albeit summer only, sadly)
Back in Swansea, I spotted a prohibition sign I haven't seen before
Don't attempt horizontal climbing? Don't sleep across the protruding metal bits? Madonna not allowed? I'm flummoxed - can any readers help?
Finally, here are a few other photos that might also entice you to pay a visit to Swansea (and prove that I didn't spend all the time looking at street furniture).
