Lovers' Walks and the Band Stand



Road Widening at Matlock Bath, 196



Here is a slightly unusual view of Jubilee Bridge,[1] as it was mostly photographed as part of the river scene.

During the tourist season there used to be a charge to cross the bridge and the Edwardian turnstile and kiosk, at the promenade end of the bridge for over half a century, were to control the crowds and take their money. The signboard advertises the entrance to the Lovers' Walks - access had been by ferry before the bridge was built - and the performances of the local band. The band played in the bandstand, or band kiosk, on the Lovers' Walk side; the sign shows they played for two hours at a time, with a two hour break between performances.
