Often when walking in the countryside we come across seats, strategically placed in memory of someone who ‘loved this view’. But often too the view is no longer the one which was loved by that person.
Even if the vista has not been marred by development, lack of management and change in climate has caused it to become obscured by trees.
Perhaps a better idea is to donate a gate in place of a stile on a public path, a scheme run by the Isle of Wight Ramblers, Chiltern Society and many others. That brings lasting pleasure to many walkers.
