ABC Wednesday: Fraser Street


Today's post for ABC Wednesday is F for Fraser Street.
Today's photo shows the smart terraced houses of Fraser Street, overlooking the Memorial Gardens near the centre of Ashton.

Fraser Street is one of several streets in the area whose names have Scottish connections. The stone plaque between the upstairs windows shows that the houses in this block were known as Derby Place, possibly a reference to the Earl of Derby.

The photo was taken towards the end of last year just as the leaves were starting to fall.

See Google Street View of this location.

  5. When you study the old town plans almost all terraced homes were named.
    In this picture, to the left was Handel Place and to the right Brighton Terrace.
    I just wish I could have been there during the building boom in the 19th century!
