Taunton Road



A view looking northwards along Taunton Road towards its junction with Newmarket Road.

Those who have been away from Ashton for a while may get the feeling that there is something missing from the scene - for it was here on the left that the Gardeners Arms stood for many years.

It dated from 1837 and was originally called Two Gates or The Angel, and then the Foresters Arms. It became the Gardeners Arms around 1854. It was demolished around 2004 and replaced by the large building left of centre in the photo.

See Google Aerial View of this location.

  1. Two Gates was obviously a large lodging house of some kind as there were many people with that address in the 1871/1881 census
