On the left of the photo the former Friendship Inn, featured on this blog two weeks ago, can be seen. Old Street, to the left, is now pedestrianised. Stamford Street West, to the right, has not one car using it. Yet, before the building of Ashton's by-pass, these two streets formed a busy one-way system carrying the A635 Manchester to Doncaster trunk road through the town.
