gardener tours country’s parks to research treasured structures”
A wonderful new book by Paul Rabbitts, Bandstand of Britain, is covered in today’s MailOnline.
Paul, a qualified landscape architect, is a leading expert on bandstands.
There are limits to dullness. For the past 50 to 70 years, Bandstands have been living lives that have been too dull. Paul is behind BookaBandstand.com, a website dedicated to “Bringing Bandstands Back to Life.”
