Kings Road

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

"K" is for "Kings Road" and today's photo shows part of Kings Road in the Hurst Cross area of Ashton.

Kings Road was originally called Hurst Lane and was the route from Ashton to Hurst Cross and Higher Hurst. From Hurst Cross travellers could head eastwards towards Mossley and Yorkshire or northwards along a maze of lanes towards Park Bridge and Oldham.

On the right is the much re-branded Co-op "local" store, once the Co-op "Late Shop" but now "Co-operative Food".

On the left, behind the former Church Inn (now itself a shop) is the spire of St John's church.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

See Google Street View of this location.

"Kings Road" is a contribution to ABC Wednesday. For more "K" posts from around the world please follow this link.


  1. I just had to Google Ashton-Under-Lyne to see how big it is. Not huge, but obviously affording many photo opportunities.
    I got a little giggle out of your Kings Road post, because of the "much re-branded" store. There's a grocery store in my home town in BC whose name I can never remember because it has changed so often, and yet I can remember when it wasn't even there. (British Columbia is much younger than Great Britain!!)
    Thanks for today's post. It got me thinking, and anything that does that has got to be good.

  2. An interesting post today. In our little town there is a restaurant, and every time it has new management it changes it's name, but I still call it the first name I knew it by. Even under all the many new managers, the food never improves.

  3. nice looking town.
