Victorian bandstand

South Marine Park, South Shields

South Marine Park, South Shields

This is the bandstand that I introduced to you yesterday, it’s a rebuilt replica of the original Victorian structure that was introduced not long after the park was instituted. The Heritage Lottery Fund has helped South Tyneside Council refurbish South Shields most popular park to a very high standard, and it ought to be looking spectacular this summer.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/125 second, f8, iso 200

  1. When I saw this on the portal I thought that a flying saucer had landed Tyneside. A Victorian flying saucer, as it turns out.

  2. Hi Curly,
    Nice pic. We used to go to South Shields for our Sunday School Trip. We would take the ferry to North Shields (and come straight back again), eat out lunch on the beach, have a look at the lifeboat, and end up in the park. We never, ever, went into the sea.
    We are having problems with our council about our bandstand, so, if I may, I will take a copy of the pic to show what they can look like if looked after properly.
