Unique bus stop for Lodsworth


Lodsworth has a unique new bus stop courtesy of celebrated craftsman Ben Law.

Chairman of Lodsworth Parish Council Caroline Neville said: “ Our old bus stop was in a very sorry state and ‘off the peg ‘ ones did not seem to be quite right, so naturally we approached Ben Law.”

The new bus stop on the A272 at Halfway Bridge was designed and built using wood from local trees by Ben, who shot to fame when he was featured in Channel 4’s Grand Designs series when he built his own timber framed home.

“Lodsworth would like to thank him for such a lovely place to sit while waiting for the bus” said Caroline.
