Here is a link to the details. The planning consent will expire again in 2016 so lets hope it is sold soon.

Talking about Ashton / Granville Street Baptist Church
« on: September 07, 2015, 12:47 PM »
I am doing some research into the Cockbrook area.

Does anybody know anything about this church please?

It opened before 1874 but where exactly was it on Granville Street?

When did it close?

Thanks
Heather

Just been on the news, the water is now safe to drink. If you are returning from holiday, let the water run for a few minutes to clear the pipes.

Albert, my grandad was in the army. When they came back from India at the star of WW2, they lived at Crawford Terrace before going to Corkland Close. Dad went to St Gabriels, then Parochial. John Yates (The Petman) also lived on Corkland Close.

Albert, my dad left Stamford in 1946. His name was Jimmy Brown and he lived on Corkland Close Cockbrook. He went to work in the Co-op on Stamford Crescent on his 14th Birthday.

A brown plaque is to be put on the building at the Heritage Open weekend in September.

The history group that I attend are researching the old Mechanics Institution / Heginbottom School building on the corner of Church Street and Warrington Street.

We would be pleased to hear any memories of the building that you may have.

Do you have any family stories from when it was used as a Military Hospital in WW1?

Did you attend Heginbottom Girls School?

Did you work there?

Did you do an Adult Learning course when Tameside used the building in the 70s, 80s and 90s?


Thanks

I wondered if it was Sullivans. The census calls it Cooperation.

Now that the Reporter has moved back to Ashton, a lot more old copies have been taken to the Archives in Ashton.

The car park on Burlington Street which had been 'given' to New Charter to build on is reverting to a car park this month as they are unable to build there. It is not as near as the one on Cotton Street was but it is better than having to go to the precinct.
