A lot depends on date.  For example Limehurt Rural District which comprised Alt (Parkbridge), Lees, Crossbank, Hartshead, Knott Lanes, Waterhouses (DaisyNook), Woodhouses, Littlemoss, Taunton, Waterloo, Bardsley came to an end around 1953/4.  Districts were split between Ashton, Oldham, Failsworth etc.

Bardsley became part of Oldham as did Lees and Crossbank.  Not sure about Alt and Parkbridge.

Cockbrook, Hooley Hill, Luzley may be.  And when did Littlemoss become part of Manchester?

Pot Hill also heard it called "Little India" because of the names of the streets like Bengal Square.

That area was called 'Penny Meadow' long before that part of Katherine Street was re-named 'Penny Meadow'.

I was in the choir at Holy Tripe shop.I have photos of the parade
taken from an upstairs window on Stamford St. taken during the walks around  late 40's They must have been taken by a pro.
I seem to think the  parish boundary was Cavendish St. to Stamford St. to Richmond St. to Kenyon St.

Title: Re: DISTRICTS IN ASHTON
Post by: Albert on February 03, 2017, 08:36 PM

Just on Goggle Earth,that's a pretty unusually secluded mansion where the library was.
I hope the owner isn't one of the local establishment boys (or girls or don't knows)
Info???
 just a thought, as DJ often says
