Denton Parish Council History

This section covers various aspects of the history of local government in Denton, principally the Parish Council. It is hoped to eventually fill the various gaps in the data.

Sources

Details of the Council's history have been gleaned from a number of sources notably a Parish Council minute book which covers, in one volume, all the meetings between 18th April 1900 and 6th October 1970. Some "highlights" extracted from these minutes are recorded on a separate page.

Background

Civil (as against "ecclesiastical") parish councils were established by the Local Government Act of 1884. Details of Dentons PC's activities for the earliest years are, as yet, unknown but the objective of these pages is to record any significant information that is available.
