Frank Brown picThis morning, local historian Frank Brown presented Andrew Gwynne MP with a copy of his self-published book, ‘Well! I Never Knew That About Denton’.

The book is a compilation of stories and photographs documenting Denton’s colourful past and seeks to answer the questions Frank is commonly asked when he’s giving talks on behalf of Denton History Society.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“I think I’m really going to enjoy spending time reading this book. People know I love local history, but there are things in it that I didn’t know about my home town.

“Frank has worked really hard to compile this, so well done to him!”

Copies can be bought via Thackeray’s Books in Denton, or directly from Frank himself on 0161 336 7723, email frankbrown772 [at]
