Castle Green Bandstand.
The short lived Castle Green Bandstand and Redcliffe Gardens situated on the lower side of the Castle Green in the early 1970s.The project was completed in 1969 and was very impressive with it's new Bandstand it's waterfall and it's large pool which was crossed by a small footbridge.
Unfortunately the waterfall and pool was never really looked after by the powers that be and was closed and filled in the 1990s.The same was to happen to the Bandstand and after years of complaints from local residents was pulled down by the authorities.
It seems such a shame the city has not bothered to replace the old Bandstand with something more in keeping with today's needs.
