The Welbys had a succession of fine houses at Denton, culminating in the one designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield in the 1880s (illustrated here).

The house suffered a serious fire in 1906 but survived only to be demolished in 1939.

The Denton Manor shown in the postcard was designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield for Sir W. E. Welby Gregory and built between 1879 and 1883.

The fire broke out in the private chapel, caused probably by a flue overheating.

The house was eventually demolished around 1939.

The flames may have added by the postcard manufacturer.

St Andrew’s in Denton has a Transitional north doorway but is otherwise in the Decorated and Perpendicular styles.

The spacious interior contains numerous hatchments & monuments – one of 1602 to John Blyth but mostly to members of the Welby family.
