Welcome to The Bench Mark

“Unclean, unclean…” the leper cries… (in mediaeval times at least)

Sadly, the global pandemic (is that tortology?!) has done it for The Bench Mark and the b&b is now closed until further notice.

So, just for the record:  The Bench Mark is a private house that used to offer accommodation to passing travelers but is now, sadly, closed.

One thing remains unchanged – I still make delicious Seville orange marmalade, available from No. 25 Delicatessen, at the bottom of the hill…

I can’t imagine why anyone should wish to contact me, but the details are:
