Bandstand cast iron restoration – Lightwoods park

We began the Bandstand repair work in Lightwoods Park, Bearwood, near Birmingham in 2015 and completed it by January 2016.

All the repairs were done in Cast iron. We refurbished the bandstand cast-iron handrails, guttering, and roof-level decorative railings. We made Cast iron weather vanes, stalk, and coordinate points with a copper vane. Also, Cast iron was the double gates, with decorative details to match the existing handrails, including the open and shut locking mechanisms. This cast iron restoration project gave the park Bandstand a new lease of life.
