"S" is for "Stairway" and today's photo shows one of the stairways inside Ashton Town Hall.
There is a grand staircase leading up from the entrance foyer to the main public hall itself, but these are the back stairs, linking the Mayor's Parlour with the Council Chamber. The wall alongside the staircase is lined with photographs of the Mayors of Tameside.
The photo shows Councillor John Sullivan, who was Mayor of Tameside at the time I visited as one of his guests. No doubt his portrait has since appeared on the wall!
The stairs downwards lead to Sentantii, a museum about the people who have lived in the Tameside area over the centuries. Sentantii, another S word, was the name of a British tribe who lived in the area before the time of the Roman invasion.
