Croydon: Wandle Park

The Bandstand in Wandle Park Croydon had previously been demolished and Lost Art Limited were commissioned to produce and install a replacement bandstand. Examination of the historic documents, such as the postcard included below showed that it was a classic Pattern 224 style bandstand from the Glasgow firm of the Macfarlane Foundry.

Lost Art Limited carry a number of MacFarlane Foundry catalogues in their archive as well as other documentation. In addition, having previously worked on similar bandstands, we also carry a number of patterns for the casting of replacement components.

In addition to the production and installation of the bandstand, Lost Art also supplied a number of our classic Edwardian style Cartmel Benches along with a considerable amount of decorative fencing and knee rail as can be seen in the photograph below.
