Dating back from 1874, Devonshire Park has long been an attraction within Eastbourne, originally laid out with terraces, walks and a cricket ground. Later additions to Eastbourne’s oldest park included racquets and skating for the Victorian middle classes with the first tennis courts being laid out in 1880 and tournament in 1881. The park was bordered by the Devonshire Baths which were constructed in 1874, the Winter Garden in 1875, the Devonshire Park Theatre in 1884 and the Indian Pavilion in 1891. All of these were built by the Devonshire Park & Baths Company, of which the 7th Duke of Devonshire was the main shareholder. Now demolished, at the time the Devonshire Baths were the largest heated salt water baths in the country. The Indian Pavilion was taken down to make way for the Congress Theatre in 1963. With a history stretching back over 140 years, the face of Devonshire Park has changed over time but remained popular with residents and visitors.
Dunham-Bush’s Hydrocourse Trench heating system is a highly effective tried and tested solution for countering down draughts on cold surfaces, helping to prevent unsightly condensation on large glazed areas and outside walls. This makes it perfect for a wide variety of commercial and institutional buildings, for example high rise offices, car showrooms, airports, universities and exhibition centres, where extensive glazed areas are a common feature.
