Alphabet Friday - Old Tram Depot

"O" is for "Old Tram Depot" and that is what this building on Cowhill Lane used to be. It was used by the Manchester Carriage and Tramway Company between 1881 and 1901. When Ashton's tramway system was taken over by Ashton Corporation, a new, bigger depot was built on Mossley Road, which became the town's bus garage.

The depot in Cowhill Lane was used by horse-drawn trams. There was stabling for the horses on the upper level, accessed from the rear of the building. This building is adjacent to St James's Church.

I wouldn't like to imagine exactly what "Impregnation Services" has to offer.....

See Google Aerial View of this location.


  1. I took a small diverson on my way home from work last night and passed an old tram depot of my own, fancy that!

    It's a record company now but the big tram doors are still there.

    Imprengnation services are usually carried out in Doctors offices in Beverly Hills rather than an old tram shed.
