"P" is for "Point" and today's photo shows "The Point", which is a building that formerly housed Ashton's Labour Exchange and County Court, but has now been converted into apartments.
The building was empty for a number of years until a developer took on the challenge to spend £2 million on converting the building. Unfortunately the company ran into financial difficulties and the project was halted. Luckily another company saw the merit in the scheme and completed the work. Read more about it here.
This is the view from the Point, looking across Park Parade (Ashton's by-pass) to the Parish Church.
(That's enough Ps for one Photo - Ed.)
