Roadside Planter

This week's view of My World shows a roadside planter at the side of Ashton's newest road, Albion Way.

Albion Way opened a few months ago and bypasses the Market area, making life easier for shoppers to get to bus stops and to Penny Meadow. To brighten the road up, the council has placed a number of metal flower boxes alongside. These are painted in the town's colours of dark blue and silver (like this website) and bear the town's name and coat of arms.

I can't show you the Google Street View of this, as Mr Google hasn't driven past here since the road opened.

"Roadside Planter" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

    Why does it bear the Ashton-under-Lyne coat of arms when everything that the Council erects in Hyde bears the Tameside coat of arms?

  3. Indeed but Mr Bing has driven past the new road.
    Now, it is very interesting that the coat of arms is the old Ashton one and that's something I find very strange and consequently echo the point raised here by the gentleman from Hyde, Mr. Dave Williams.
