Two of the bandstand’s cast iron columns, which have served in the past as downpipes for drainage, are corroded.
The original Stourbridge coat of arms plaques are also missing.
The forthcoming works in the Park, enabled by Dudley MBC and financed by Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund, will replace parts of the original ironwork and also the Stourbridge coat of arms plaques. The steps will also be replaced with dwarf brick walls topped with sandstone – in keeping with the original look.
A new power supply to the bandstand will also be laid.
