nother photo of the Sling Bandstand

Two photos of a performance taking place at the Bandstand at Sling. This bandstand replaced an older more traditional structure that was raised above the ground and was situated on The Scarr, close to the Gattock stone.

Thanks to Harold Davis who added: "... the second picture shows Tony Higgins conducting Parkend Band".

Keith added that the photos were taken in the early 1970's.

Bob Smith added (Aug. 2016): "... Having grown up in Sling I remember the 'old' bandstand very well although at that time it was derelict and had been out of use for some time. I also recall the old refuse tip being lanscaped and the new bandsatnd being built . It is a great shame it is now as derelict and unused as I remember the old one being".
