There is lettering on the walls saying "County Bank". It later became the Trustee Savings Bank until a newer building was opened on Old Street (now Lloyds TSB).
Since ceasing to be a bank, this attractive building has had a number of uses, including a bar, as was seen when I last showed a photo of this building.
It appears to have been divided into two units, with a new door below the window on the front of the building. Signs show that sunbeds and a tattoo parlour are to be found within. A notice over the corner door announces the "Amazing Good News Gospel Church".
Stamford Street was once the main shopping and commerce street in Ashton but, as the shops have migrated northwards into the Ladysmith Centre and the "Arcades" mall, the street has had to re-invent itself as the buildings find new purposes.
