It was a sunny morning today and I had time to wander round the Museum looking for pictures.
1. On my way to Wakebridge I noticed a contractor at work on the bandstand.
2 & 3. The floor is being completely replaced and should be completed by Easter provided the weather stays nice.
4. The contractor asked me how long the Bandstand had been at Crich. I replied at least 30 years. "Was the floor new timber at that time?" "I think so."
This photo appeared in the January 1972 Journal. So I wasn't too far out in my estimate.
I will continue my walk up the line tomorrow.
