Only a mile away from the centre of Ashton is the Town Hall of Ashton's near neighbour Dukinfield.
Dukinfield, across the old county boundary in what was Cheshire, developed much later than Ashton. Its late Victorian Town Hall was opened in 1901. The tower has five bells from the famous bell-makers Taylors of Loughborough and the clock was made by Joyce of Whitchurch, the same manufacturer that made the clock at Stalybridge Station.
The Town Hall is built of Accrington Brick with stone banding, the colours of which can be seen in this photo which appeared earlier.
