Bandstand Dome Returns

The dome of the bandstand returned today and was lifted in place with a crane. Above ready to lift the dome in its glory with a gold leaf top and a repaired copper top ready weathered. If it wasn't weathered it would drip down and spoil the rest of the bandstand

The crane lifting the dome on a cold wet miserable day

The men inside the roof guide the dome into place ready to bolt it in place inside the roof
The dome on the final few feet being lowered

Inside the bandstand note the restored posts and railings and showing the roof and beams in the roof

A long shot from by the Boer War memorial showing the dome in place with the new roof some of which is still covered in plastic coating protecting it
