The Barlow Tyrie Sissinghurst Teak Bench is an interpreted design inspired by the highly respected Edwardian architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, who designed the seat for the grounds of Sissinghurst Castle. The opulent style of this seat is very distinctive with beautiful organic flowing curves and curls. Great as a focal point in your garden, perhaps reflected in a water feature. Adding elegance to your outdoor space year round. The quality of the build and materials mean that it is supremely durable and made to outlast other benches. Weathering to an attractive silver grey over time unless cosmetic applications are applied. When this piece is properly cared for, it can last a lifetime.
Barlow Tyrie is renowned worldwide for luxury outdoor furniture. As the world’s oldest manufacturer of quality teak leisure furniture, Barlow Tyrie’s teak wood is first grade plantation grown teak (Tectona Grandis) sourced mainly in Indonesia, where responsible forestry practices are employed.

Teak is a natural material and as such fine cracks in the end grain of components may appear. The teak may show some vigorous grain and possibly some splits, all of which are part of the product character and not a fault. Over a few months in an outdoor environment, untreated teak will weather to a silver grey colour, which is due to the action of sunlight. Many owners of teak furniture prefer this natural patina, but care products such as Barlow Tyrie's own Teak Colour Guard may be used to retain or restore the original colour of Teak. Note: This treatment must be applied before the Teak is allowed to weather or after cleaning.
- Please also note that we put in orders on-demand for our clients and there are many customisation options. If you are interested in other Barlow Tyrie products or colour/material options, please feel free to get in touch with us.

Barlow Tyrie have a 100 year heritage and are regarded as the "Rolls Royce" of garden furniture. You have two options to choose from to personalise your memorial bench.
- Bronze Plaque Engraving - £69 for plaque and £3.60 per plaque letter inscribed
Bronze plaques have their lettering set in cream vitreous enamel. The finished plaque is then recessed into the face of the rail and held in position using a special hidden vandal-proof fitting. A 57mm deep (approx. 2") bronze plaque with 6mm – (0.25") block letters is supplied as standard, see detailed image. However plaques can be made bespoke to any size with a choice of lettering and font styles available – please inquire.
Plaques allow you to be creative with your choice of font or an image as illustrated by the ‘musical notes’ plaque below.
- Carved Wood Inscription - £2 per letter (in serif font)
3D-lettering is carved in a traditional serif typeface using a ‘V’- cut, which has the added advantage in that it allows your inscription to be read easily from the side as well as from immediately in front over a standard ‘straight-cut’ letter.
An inscription service is normally supplied in capital letters using a ‘Times New Roman’ serif font at 2.5cm (1") in height. If more than one line of text is required there might be a need to reduce the height of text depending on the model of seat.
The maximum number of characters and length of an inscription will depend on the seat model, the length of the seat, the height of text, whether upper or lower case or the font used. The Barlow Tyrie Rothesay seat allows 3 rows of text whilst other seats can only accommodate up to 2 rows.
Times New Roman is the standard font but for something different Barlow Tyrie are able to supply bespoke inscriptions in other fonts plus inscriptions in foreign language scripts such as Chinese or Arabic.
A teak panel in a seat back with a logo or a club crest is also a bespoke option if suitable artwork is available – please inquire.
