Charles Street in Ashton
« on: August 16, 2010, 11:03 AM »
Hi everyone 
Does anyone know whereabouts Charles Street was in Ashton?  There's one in Dukinfield but perhaps there used to be one in Ashton town too?

There sure was it was off Cavendish st.
Hard work never killed anyone-but it made some funny shapes.

Hi Meg,

I think Sooty might be in the right direction, but a bit further down towards Portland Street. There are photos taken of the properties before they were demolished on the Tameside Image Archive.
Don't let the B***ds grind you down.

Charles Street was parallel to Stamford Street (on the canal side) running between Margaret Street and Cavendish Street. My father was born at number 118.

The last surviving section of Charles Street has recently become incorporated into a motor dealer's car park.

let me find my goggles!

Ah Yes, you may very well be right!
I used to go there when I was babysitting Eric's son, across the St.
I met Eric at Sterling Moulding Materials (Castle Mill) Staybridge, when I was in Technical Service and he was in Quality Control.
He remembered me, years earlier, from collecting Window Cleaning money every Friday Fortnightly!

My closet pub was the Moss Side, in the 1970's
