Town Hall Steps



One of Ashton's landmarks is its Town Hall with its grand steps running down to the Market ground.

The original part of the building, seen here with its Corinthian columns, was opened in 1840. Inside the main entrance was the Mayor's Parlour to the left and the Committee Room to the right. Upstairs was the large hall for formal occasions such as banquets. There was originally a Police Station in the back of the building.

Parts of the building now accommodate the Museum of the Manchesters.
