Riverbank chair

The piece of blackened oak which forms the back of this chair was found in Sarre Penn, a small stream which rises in Blean Woods north of Canterbury and runs through the magical Broad oak valley towards Sandwich.

The seat is carved from a thick cedar plank which was washed-up on the banks of the river Medway near Rochester, and all the other timbers came from my usual hunting ground alongside Oare Creek near Faversham.
