Prince of Orange


Today's view of the world of Ashton under Lyne shows the Prince of Orange pub on the corner of Warrington Street and Wellington Road, in Ashton.

A public house by that name has existed in this location since before 1817. However, a quick look at the building's architecture will tell you that the building is more modern than that. Indeed, it was rebuilt in 1926, after the pub was taken over by Robinson's Brewery. Its design features mock-Tudor timbered gables, which were fashionable in that period.

The Prince of Orange pub is near Ashton Railway Station that was featured here last week.

See Google Street View of this location.

  1. That bright blue half-timbering is a bit of a surprise. Interesting history of the location, however. Did I miss the railway station last week? I haven't been feeling well, so I must take a look.
    Cheers!

  2. Taken before the coming of Albion Way, long may it stay in that prominent position. Nice one, Martin.
