Currier Lane


This is the view looking down the western end of Currier Lane towards Scotland Street, with the tower of Ashton's Parish Church in the background.

Now a quiet backwater, Currier Lane is an ancient highway and was the main route towards Stalybridge and Mottram before the present A635 Stamford Street East was built.

  3. Its not a historic picture - it is a recent one! It's strange how a little corner of Ashton, so close to the town centre, can still have almost a village look. More photos of Currier Lane to follow...
