Those who like to go walking
will often relish the chance to sit down when they find a seat or bench on a footpath, so it may please visitors to the North York Moors to learn a popular memorial seat near Staithes has been rescued from certain doom.
A wooden memorial seat dedicated to the memory of the late Eric and Nina Hibbin - who lived nearby - has been removed from its spot close to a cliff as a landslip had left it vulnerable and sure to fall had the national park authority not acted.
The removal led to the recovery of a time capsule left by the creator of the seat when it was installed ten years ago.
It is located by Walkers Halt on the Cleveland Way, ensuring it is very much on the beaten track for many people.
The Cleveland Way is a 110-mile route stretching from Helmsley to Filey and skirting the national park.
