Wet bench

The good idea was adding a bench to the long stretch of the tow path between Teddington Lock and Ham House, particularly when it gives you a good view of the artificial Sand Martin nest on Eel Pie Island. The bad idea was putting it below the high water line, building a path to it that is far more formal than the tow path that it leads off, and destroying a large swath of Ham Lands to accommodate it.
