Good stuff :-)
They won't be coming along the B road from Newton as Colin has a gravel-strewn lane he feels obliged to cycle along, bypassing Newton, which means they'll come down the switchback hill from the direction of Wigglesworth (from where the Streetview view you posted is facing). Handily, there is now a bench to the left of the drinking fountain you can see on Streetview. There are also several benches on the open grassy area by the river, at the bottom of said switchback and about 100m. beyond the view you posted.
Thanks - local knowledge is priceless as ever.
The bench by the drinking fountain sounds good to me.
My arthritis means standing about for very long is not ideal, so I would have been looking for a perch.
Do I get the impression you may now be joining us a bit further along the route?
Either way, look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
