header2021Mickleton Parish Council (MPC) has just completed a photographic report (2nd & 3rd September 2021) on the seats and benches around the village and it's environs. This report is available to download here icon Seats and Benches Report 2021 (3.65 MB)

As is quite evident from they photographs some of these seats and benches have degenerated into quite a deplorable state and are in need of urgent attention. Needless to say the owner of most of them is Durham County Council (DCC) who have been approached but remain far from sympathetic, the best the can manage is a "stiff ignoring". MPC is formulating a plan to make some improvements, but that of course takes time and money. Keep watching the MPC website and facebook page for developments.
