History

  1. History image goes here
  2. Formation

    Over the years there have been many changes to the Park, resulting in it falling into disrepair and suffering from neglect. The castle was demolished in 1964, the paddling pool was filled in and grassed over in 1988, and when the Pavilion was demolished in 1998 a group of local residents formed the Friends of Beaumont Park to act as a pressure group working with Kirklees Council with a view to restoring the Park. Following members approval given at our AGM in December 2008 we applied to become a Company Limited by Guarantee and with effect from 1 April 2009 we became a Limited Company and on 23 April 2009 we became a Registered Charity.
