Ashton Market

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Since the weather has gone a little damp and dreary I have dug out a nice sunny image of Ashton's market ground.

This view looks across towards the Town Hall from the pedestrianised Warrington Street. I remember when cars and buses ran along Warrington Street and there was a car parking area alongside the market. It is a more pleasant environment nowadays!

"Ashton Market" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

See Bird's Eye View of this location.


  1. Looks like a colorful place for people to stroll and enjoy the market wares.

  2. Oh yes, I agree. Much more pleasant with these surroundings. I love the colours of the coverings for the stalls. Is that old-fashioned style canopy on the left for a merry-go-round?

  3. Joining MyWorld for the first time.

    Outdoor markets are great to visit on sunny days.

  4. Julie - yes, there are two merry-go-rounds. There is a photo here.

  5. That's a nice cheery and bright picture. I've given up on our summer!

  6. I remember when traffic went along the front of the Town Hall
