Sheldon Arms



The Sheldon Arms is a new pub near the boundary between Ashton and Audenshaw. It is situated, appropriately enough, on Lord Sheldon Way, the new road between the Snipe and IKEA.

The building is very traditional in design and from the front could be mistaken for a village pub at first glance.

The Sheldon Arms and Lord Sheldon Way are named after Robert Sheldon, now Baron Sheldon, who served as MP for Ashton under Lyne for 37 years. In Parliament he was the respected chairman of the Public Accounts Committee for 14 years, having previously been Financial Secretary to the Treasury for 5 years.

  1. Its a shame there aren't more politicians like Lord (sorry Baron) Sheldon these days instead of the photo opportunity seekers we have today.
