Hazelhurst estate is the most easterly part of the built-up area of Ashton. It lies between Mossley Road and Gorsey Lane, near the site of the former Hazelhurst Mill, a small early cotton mill which was in operation between the 1790s and 1880s. The photo shows Hazelhurst Road, with the estate's shops on the left.

  1. Hi,
    I was born Lynn Hazelhurst (my father was from the A-U-L area) so have always assumed that this is where our surname originated. This is what brought me here to your site. It has always intrigued me that sometimes the name is spelt HazELhurst and others HazLEhurst, so I came here for some clarity on the real spelling, only to find that within this article you spell it both ways!!! lynn@dramaticsolutions.co.za

  2. Ooops! I'm afraid spelling it both ways was a typo, Lynn. It's supposed to be Hazelhurst, as in your name. I can't think what came over me! (I've now corrected the spelling.)

  3. Hello I am trying to find when hazelhurst was built more specifically Ashbourne drive.
