Billy Stamper’s Bench is Back

Alan Myers tests the replacement bench recently installed at the top of the bank.

This much loved Rosedale bench, a feature on several iconic post cards, had sadly fallen into total disrepair following many years of enduring the inclement weather and some serious winters.

The new replacement bench, in memory of Billy Stamper (one of the Dale’s most fondly remembered characters) can now now again be enjoyed by all and offers one of the best views in the dale from the top of Chimney Bank.
