Bill Phillips: Victorian in appearance but actually dates from 1923
Handel's Water Music goes perfectly with your photo. My goodness > extra tall boots are needed to walk here.
Bill Phillips: Walking here was not a good idea Jacquelyn

Floating brick rotunda cum water feature...very innovative...
Bill Phillips: You should see it go when they put an outboard on it

It's deep isn't it! Given that things have got a tad drier lately have the levels gone down?
Bill Phillips: They have and it is more or less back to normal now.

Oh, so much water in Worcester - it may last some time to flow away - the pavillion looks very elegant - my first thought was to be in Brighton.
Handel's music is wonderful. I heard it once while the fountains in the formal garden Wilhelmshöhe/Kassel jumped up and down.
Bill Phillips: That must have been a delight Philine. The Pavilion is a Victorian Bandstand which stands on an island in the pond. They have bras band concerts there sometimes...very English! Actually the bandstand is not Victorian but dates from 1923 just after the park was opened. Looks Victorian though!!

Haha - very good Bill. I was trying to think of something from Sgt. Peppers, but you have nailed it!
Bill Phillips: No that's an album I haven't played in a long time Mike!
This is very sad. Think of all the mothers whose kids have to stay inside driving them crazy because they can't go to the playground.
Bill Phillips: They can always read books!

A good place for a performance of Handel's Water Music.
Bill Phillips: They would have needed waders!
Great photo bill ...
Bill Phillips: Cheers Shane
Love the design and colours, Bill. It reminds me a bit of a fairground carousel. Thankfully the flood waters have receded.
Bill Phillips: I can see what you mean Beverly
Indeed a good choice of music for this rather wet scene Bill. I presume this is the park near where your daughter lives that you mentioned the other day.
Bill Phillips: It is Brian. Just around the corner!

Lovely to see water finding its own level
Bill Phillips: Not unusual to have flooding in Worcester but particularly bad this year

Apt music for the image. We have been so lucky here in Lancaster not to have had floods, through the ground is ultra soggy
What a beautiful and elegant bandstand Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Richard
wow Bill... despite the flood of waters..still as lovely!
Bill Phillips: Happily the water has now receded
Another fine sunny day for it!
Bill Phillips: Depressing isn't it?
i would say that handsome bandstand is a popular spot under different circumstances.
Bill Phillips: It is Ayush. Open air concerts
