Anyone pausing to take a closer look will be impressed to see that the plaque features historical information about the northern part of Ashton, including Waterloo, Taunton, Fairbottom and Park Bridge.
Tameside Council started to commission these plaques, intending to have one for each of the 19 council wards in the borough. Unfortunately, with only a few made so far, the economic climate means that no more will appear, at least for the time being, which is a shame, as the plaques seem to me to be an excellent way of helping people to know more about their local history.

In future posts I will show close-ups of the features on the plaque along with more information about the places concerned.
