Old Town


"Welcome to Ashton Old Town" proclaims the sign as you enter Stamford Street from the Scotland Street roundabout. I don't know of any definition of what "Ashton Old Town" actually is, but the name seems to be a sort of re-branding of the Stamford Street area.

In fact, the area seen in the photo really was the old town as the old market cross stood somewhere on the right, around the junction of Old Street and Crickets Lane. St Micheal's Square was the original market area, in the shadow of the parish church.
