The Dene :: Shared Description

The Dene is a natural feature in Saltwell Park, a stream valley. Its beauty was recognised by William Wailes LinkExternal link who built Saltwell Towers and laid out its surrounding gardens as a private estate between 1850 and 1862. It is thought that The Dene was originally laid out to resemble a Scottish glen. Edward Kemp changed it in 1876 when he designed the rest of Saltwell Park giving it a more Italianate appearance with waterfalls and pools. His design was preserved in the earliest OS maps. In 2002, following a long period of neglect, The Dene was restored with funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund by realignment of the stream course, provision of a pumping system to recirculate the water, providing footpaths in their original locations and building several wooden bridges in their historical style.
