"P" is for "Providence House" and today's photo shows the larger-than-average house of this name which stands on the corner of Cowhill Lane and Albemarle Street, close to the centre of Ashton.
The house was built in 1899 and stands amid smaller terraced houses which were built earlier. On a grassy knoll to the north stands St James' Church, which has appeared here several times.
If anyone knows any more history connected with this house, I would be pleased to hear it.
