Brick Wall


Today's view of the world of Ashton under Lyne shows you a brick wall. However, Ashton being an interesting town, you would expect this brick wall to be rather interesting.

It is the front wall of the former Wesleyan Methodist Sunday School on Mill Lane, which we saw back in October, and of which I promised to show you more.

The school was built in 1877 as indicated by the date stone and, as you would expect from a Victorian building, includes some fanciful decoration, which is in the form of inlaid stone bands, window pillars and keystones, along with arches formed from tapering bricks and stone hoodmoulds above to direct dripping rain away from the windows. The lettering "Wesleyan Methodist Schools" is carved into the stone band.

See Google Street View of this location.
