Good get Mr LasD. A shame you didn't mention that the writer of Mary Poppins grew up in sight of the bandstand (although it may not have been there when she was) and also noteworthy is the sad fate of her statue, which is often beheaded I understand.

My dear George, I did not know that about Pamela Travers. Thanks.


not too relatatet to this topic. but as I recognize the rowingboats on the second picture, did you know that an important landmark for the head of the river race [oxford vs cambridge that is, the boatrace in London] is "the bandstand" next to the Thames?
I would like to join a regatta that passes Ashfield ;)
