Crown Street


Today's photo shows Crown Street, just off Stamford Street, close to Ashton's town centre.

Crown Street was originally part of Church Street, which ran parallel with most of Stamford Street in the town centre, but was re-named when it became separated from the rest of Church Street by the building of an office block and the Post Office Sorting Office.

The houses in Crown Street are among the few remaining terraces of residential property still left in the town centre. Even the houses on the opposite side of the street have been demolished to make way for a car park.

The building at the far end is the former Wesleyan Methodist Sunday School, seen here in 2008 looking for a new use.

See Google Street View of this location.

  2. I always find it sad when the historical buildings are demolished in favour of "progress". The buildings make a pretty scene.
