It is with regret I have to inform members of the destruction of Arthur’s seat which had been erected with monies supplied by his family in 2008. The seat was on the Leicestershire Round, a few fields north of Fearn Farm(Map Ref:- SP803 989). It is unclear whether this is an act of vandalism or perhaps done by the owner of the land on safety grounds had the seat itself been damaged in someway. Attached to the seat were two plaques, one from his family and the other from our association. Arrangements have been made for the plaques to be rescued and kept safely pending decisions being made on a replacement seat. Arthur was a regular Saturday walker and mid-week walker. Many thanks to D.W. for information.
