The first mention of the Monton Green shelter was in 1928. The original application was for a shelter on Monton Green for the use of older people in cold and wet weather.

The shelter was built in 1930. It wasn't what was expected. In the St Paul's church magazine shortly after its completion, it was commented that "it was what the City Fathers think we ought to have. While a beautiful structure, there was a lament for more comfortable seats"
