What a good picture. Let's hope he can guard the pavilion to enable many more generations to admire.


Comment by Mick on 19th December 2014 at 07:38
I bet theres not many buildings in Britain thats the same shape of Mesnes park cafe.


Comment by Aubrey on 19th December 2014 at 08:17
Please add. 'it' to my last comment.


Comment by Al on 19th December 2014 at 11:33
Yes it's all nice when you can sit outside a park cafe not knowing there's a domed CCTV camera looking right at you. Why have they got a camera attached to the wall?. Last time I went inside the cafe the ceilling was filled with these creepy looking cameras? seriously over the top. People are so obliviouis to this stupid big brother world we're living in, we're too busy with trivial concerns and matters of no real importance, heads down to the ground like zombies. What's it going to be like in years time for our children and grandchildren if this intrusion of privacy continues?. We even have cameras in school changing rooms now.

Another great picture. brings back childhood memories - summer Sunday afternoons. it is a beautiful building.


Comment by Neil Cain on 19th December 2014 at 12:57
Beautiful ironwork. Local foundry?A thing of beauty is a joy forever...let's hope so.


Comment by Alan H on 19th December 2014 at 15:02
Isn't it amazing that people can sit outside at this time of year to enjoy a drink and ice cream at the café? Also that we have got a soldier back again on his plinth.
Great photo ,David

Aubreys comment for me is the most important . Al, sadly times have changed.


Comment by Mick on 19th December 2014 at 17:21
Apparently a ten sided building like the Mesnes park cafe is called a decagon


Comment by Derek Platt on 19th December 2014 at 17:29
Great photo, glad to see so many people taking advantage of the nice weather. also Al. cameras shouldn't worry anyone if they're doing nothing wrong. I also spent many Sunday afternoons in the park eyeing up the talent. Good job there were no cameras then


Comment by peterp on 19th December 2014 at 21:28
Al they have spent a fortune on the pavilion and the park but we have little dears who want to wreck it so therefore the cameras


Comment by Julie on 20th December 2014 at 18:36
PeterP little dears?


Comment by peterp on 22nd December 2014 at 04:51
Julie in their parents eyes the local vandals can do no wrong so therefore it "could not be my little dears" they would not hurt a fly nor damage anything.


Comment by Karen on 24th December 2014 at 11:36
Spot-on, peterp. Most parents are in denial when it comes to what their kids are up to.
