History of Denehurst Park
Denehurst House and the surrounding grounds were donated to the town in 1932 by Samuel Turner in memory of his father Alderman Robert Turner (founder of Turner Brothers Asbestos Ltd).
The Park took its name from Denehurst Farm which previously occupied the site of the house. The building has been used as offices for a variety of council departments since it was donated to the town.
Denehurst Cemetery was built on part of the park to meet the demands for additional burial space in the town and was officially opened in 2015. In addition, we agreed a sum of money was to be spent on improvements in the rest of the park.
