Police Station

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

This is Ashton under Lyne Police Station on Manchester Road.

The first police station in Ashton was a converted cottage in Dungeon Street (now Market Street). When the Town Hall was built it included a new police station at street level below the splendour of the civic accommodation.

The present police station, on Manchester Road, was built in recent years to replace a police station on the same site built around the 1960s.

Don't look now, but someone's stolen three of the letters from the name of the building, right under the eye of the CCTV camera!

"Police Station" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

  1. Great capture and how typical that the letters would be stolen from the police station! Have a great week!


  2. Should have kept their 'ION' it, Martin!!

  3. Hehe! Very funny that the letters were stolen from their sign.

  4. I just came across your post about the "Icelandic" sunst! The pictures look very interesting!

  5. I remember the 'old' police station at the side of the Town Hall, opposite the Market Ground. You had to go down steps to it from the street.

  6. Does anyone remember the old police station on Curzon Road,Ashton-under-Lyne at the junction of Union Road/Bengal Lane?
