The fine Glass Pavilions (now Grade II* listed) were an original feature of the Botanical Gardens when they opened in 1836. The three domes were originally linked by glasshouses, but they were demolished at the end of the nineteenth century as they were in such a poor state of repair. The Central Dome was converted into an aviary in 1961, and is here photographed in the summer of 1970. Sadly, funding cuts led to a decline in the level of maintenance and the resulting dereliction caused the pavilions to be boarded up in the mid 1990s. Since then however they have been restored to their original glory LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
