Old man on a park bench

We were driving through Burwash over the weekend and somehow, for the first time, noticed this. Yup, it’s a bronze Rudyard Kipling on a park bench. It’s well done, too.

Burwash is where Kipling’s last home was. Bateman’s. I’ve posted about it many times. It’s one of our favorite National Trust days out, though we haven’t been in a while. We quit the NT after the year of the ‘everyone is gay’ – a dual membership was getting on for £100 anyway.

Burwash itself is a pretty little village. Imagine driving through it so many times and never noticing this.

I’m sure that plaque to the left tells more about the statue, but this is Uncle B’s photo. I was too lazy to get out of the car and cross the street.
