Soon, Worthing’s bandstand will be nothing but a memory, as these pictures show.

Currently, a few columns are all that remain of the popular shelter and meeting place, in Worthing town centre.

Work to remove the structure – actually a rotunda but more commonly known as ‘the bandstand’ – began last week and is part of of a £1.2million project to revamp Worthing’s main shopping area.

The plans include new covered seating and red-brick paving, with the works following a consultation exercise with residents.
