The picture shows the construction of the new Metrolink tram terminus alongside Wellington Road in Ashton, looking back towards Oldham Road.
When the tram is running, it is a good bet that visitors arriving on the tram will notice that they come into the town past a rather large yellow and blue building. This is, of course, IKEA. I expect there's one near where you live. This particular IKEA, the Manchester branch, is a bit controversial because, unlike most branches, it is situated close to the the town centre.
This is good for those people who don't have cars but some people feel the building dominates that side of the town too much. However, that doesn't stop people shopping there and it seems to be very popular with shoppers from Ashton and from all around Manchester.
Whenever I have been in, I become baffled by all the odd names things have. I'm sure there was a table called Nigel.
