Door Shop


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

This shop on Whiteacre Road sells doors. It probably sells other things as well, but I have only ever seen doors on display outside.

I seem to remember this shop having a display of doors outside for at least the last 30 to 35 years! It is looking a little sorry for itself these days, however and could do with the benefit of a little DIY itself.

Although I have known this shop for many years and have passed it thousands of times, I have never set foot inside, but then - I don't buy doors very often.

The building looks as if it might originally have been one of Ashton's many Co-op shops. Does anyone know whether this is the case?

See Birds Eye View of this location.

  4. The building belonged to the Higher Hurst Co-operative Society which was eventually taken over by the Ashton Society. The two cottages next door quite likely also belonged to the Society. The door to the grocery department was on the corner of the building and the second door would have been the butchery department.
