Bandstand, Park Road Gardens


The ornamental cast iron bandstand is a central feature of Park Road Gardens in Grange-over-Sands. It was built by Harold Porritt, a textile factory director from Lancashire in around c.1904 (one sources states 1895) and originally located on the Promenade next to Porritt's Tea Rooms. The banstand was moved to Park Road Gardens when they were created in 1930. The bandstand is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for Endland and was extensively restored in c.1990.
