Queens Park.

Sunday afternoon was spent strolling across to the park to see the Carillion Tower. As we arrived the Charnwood Brass Band were playing in the bandstand among the beautiful flowerbeds. There is an aviary, fishponds, a museum and cafe within the park. After the band had finished the bells in the Carillion Tower struck up their tunes. The 4 octaves of 47 bells were cast at Taylors Bell Foundry and their sound carries all across the park and town. The tower is also a war memorial and museum room on two floors. The third floor is the Clavier Room, with a viewing balcony right at the top. On our way back we called into Wetherspoons for a lovely roast lunch with a free drink, luvly jubbly! Sorry no pictures today Dave as I left my camera behind.
