Warehouse Wednesday: Bandstand restoration

Leamington bandstand under restoration

Work progresses on the bandstand in the middle of the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa. 

This fine, cast-iron structure has looked very much the worse for wear over the last few years but is now recieving the care and attention is needs. 

Of course, I don't really think many people want to build a bandstand, nor that this picture will be of much help to them. I just thought it was a good chance to show this interesting video of some of the work being carried out. Got to love all that hot metal being splashed around!

Great stuff - as a Midlands brass bander I hope to play there at some point in the future !

A 4mm scale bandstand with band would be a real modelling challenge....
