Seaford's Community Bench
The Shoal, Seaford’s Community Bench, is an exciting sculptural seating attraction which has been installed in three stages, the first of which was unveiled on 1 May 2017 and the final section in April 2018.
Located on Seaford's widest jetty at Splash Point, close to Seaford Head cliffs, the bench represents a remarkable stream meandering the length of the breakwater. The brainchild of Gabby Tofts, an inspirational gardener, and Christian Funnell, a renowned local sculptor, it is already drawing a lot of enthusiastic attention.
Through generous sponsorship, this stunning sculptural bench has been built to benefit the whole community, becoming a destination with breathtaking views of Seaford Head and Seaford Bay for all to sit a while and enjoy. The galvanised, marine-grade steel used for the sculpture is vandal proof and has a lifespan of 20 years.
Due to the popularity of this project, Sprats, Sardines, Herrings and Love Fish are now sold out.
Spaces do remain for Mackerel plaques, which are placed along the top of the Monumental Mackerel.

Swimming through the stream are seven Monumental Mackerel benches, each a unique design and shape, measuring 3.5 metres in length. They face east and west alternatively to capture the views, and each one has seven sponsors, representing the ultimate gift to the people of Seaford. Plaques will be affixed along the top of the Mackerel bench and can include a logo.
