Bus Stop Cushion at Crai, Powys.

Here's a huge cushion currently softening-up a wooden bench used by bus travllers on the A4067 at Crai.

This cushion took a long time to make, probably a year's worth of waste material stripped from many reupholstered chairs. At 3.2 metres long and 3 inches thick, stuffing it was like wrestling an alligator. The piping was made from lengths of nylon twine collected from Pendine beach. It is stuffed with pieces of waste foam stripped from other chairs which is why it's so bumpy (if I were making a new bench seat it would certainly not have wrinkly edges), the mis-matched piping added to its wonkiness.

Wonky or not, this is seriously comfortable with plenty of room for a proper sleep, so if you've missed your bus after a few pints at the excellent Tanner's Arms, you know where to sleep it off.
