ABC Wednesday - D is for Denton
Denton is a town to the East of Manchester. The first photograph is of the Town Hall.
Across the road from the Town Hall is the old Post Office. It closed some years ago and is now the offices of New Charter who took over the management of the stock of local council houses in March 2000.
For a time postal services were moved to a local supermarket, but recently that too closed down and a new Post Office was opened on the corner of Peel Street and Manchester Road.
This last photo is of a sculpture outside the Town Hall. "Tipping The Denton Linney" was erected on October 12th, 2005 as a tribute to workers in the town's hatting industry.
