Victoria Park, Denton has recently had the Grade II listed Edwardian bandstand restored to former glory, after suffering from missing iron work, rotting wood and need of a re-roof. This has been achieved through receiving a substantial grant form the Heritage Lottery Fund and Tameside MBC's Preservation of Historic Buildings Fund.
The restoration took 3 months to be completed by Dorothea Restorations Ltd, with a celebratory event taking place on 16th June 2007, 12-4pm, with the official opening, Denton Brass Band, Musical Youth and entertainment for all the family.
The site was purchased in 1886 for the cost of £6750
The park was upgraded from a recreation ground in 1913 after the bandstand was built
The Denton War Memorial was erected in 1921 and weighs 90 tons.
A defused bomb was displayed for a month in the bandstand, in 1942, to raise money for the National Air-Raid Distress Fund.
The Denton War Memorial stands at 20ft high and is fixed into a solid concrete bed more than a yard thick.
