Lords cricket ground in North West London is the setting for some of the best cricket in the world. Within their grounds is Coronation Gardens, which houses the statue of W.G. Grace, the famous English amateur cricketer (18 July 1848 – 23 October 1915); as well as many memorial benches and the Thomas Lord memorial roller.
The gardens where created to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 and a British Oak was planted in the grounds. A teak tree bench was originally installed around the oak and now, many years on, the tree has out grown it and was beginning to show signs of age.
The beautiful gardens are a popular picnic area for members and Lords wanted to provide more seating in addition to the conventional teak garden bench, and replace the original smaller bench in this tranquil garden, whilst at the same time continue to feature the British ‘Coronation' Oak in the centre of the garden.
With Chic Teak already a provider of many of the memorial benches, they supplied the Club with a popular 105cm diameter tree bench to allow the Britsh oak plenty of room for growth and provide additional seats from which those seated could see both the statue and roller, whilst reflecting on the Queen's realm. For a perfect finish, the ground was levelled and covered with bark by the grounds staff.
