St Michael's House


Today's photo shows St Michael's House, which fronts onto a cobbled courtyard next to the Parish Church of St Michael, close to the original centre of the town of Ashton.

St Michael's House is a magnificent Victorian building, constructed in 1869. It was the town's registry office but now houses the offices of a number of organisations.

This Grade II Listed building is constructed of brick with bands of stone and with arched windows. There are contrasting patterns picked out in blue brick on the top storey.
