Shades of Blue

Today's photo was taken from the roof of The Arcades shopping mall, from the same spot as last week's photo of Water Street.

It shows the IKEA store in the centre of the photo, with the Wellington Road bingo emporium and retail park to the right. To the left is Assheton House, probably one of the most convenient blocks of flats for shopping and buses!

It's a good job Ashton's buses are no longer blue, or they would really clash with the assorted shades of blue in this photo!

  1. hi i wonder when ikea build another 22 here in the uk will they stand out as the one in ashton ,i know the one in warrington does not have the same effect on the landscape , or do you know any ikea that does

  2. I don't know about that, Greeny - the one in Warrington is visible for miles across the flat landscape there but, unlike the one in Ashton, it is right on the edge of the town rather than in the middle.
