Every Victorian park had to have a bandstand, many of which succumbed to the indifference of the post war years. With the advent of the Heritage Lottery Fund many of our parks have received much needed attention and along with the park gates and fencing, many bandstands have been the subject of restoration projects. Chris Topp & Co has been fortunate to be instrumental in the repair of many of these.
With possible funding available and a growing interest in public spaces, a demand has arisen for new bandstands. Chris Topp’s latest project was at Roberts Park in Saltaire, they won a tender process in 2009 to create and build an open bandstand for this historic park.
As specialist ironwork designers Chris Topp & Co’s role was to apply this concept to the outline proposal of the bandstand, fully detailing all aspects of its decoration & construction.
• Horns & Saxifrage
Following 9 months of construction the bandstand had its official opening ceremony on the 23rd May 2010
