The Long Bench Project
Aldingbourne Trust are proud to offer the Long Bench Slat Scheme, a wonderful opportunity for you to make your mark on the Littlehampton seafront.
The Long Bench at Littlehampton is thought to be the longest bench in Britain and one of the longest in the world. The wood and stainless steel bench ‘flows’ along the promenade at Littlehampton in West Sussex – curving round lamp posts and obstacles, twisting up into the seafront shelters, dropping down to paths and crossings.
The bench was opened in July 2010 and can seat over 300 people. It was funded by Arun District Council and CABE’s ‘Sea Change’ capital grants programme for cultural and creative regeneration in seaside resorts.
With inspiration and input from children at the local primary school, the 1,000 foot long bench is now a popular visitor attraction.
