Whilst you don't usually title/identify the locations of your photographs, Bill, I really think you should do so for future reference/archive purposes as they are a terrific record of Ashton's architecture down the years. I'll have a stab at identifying this one. I assume the street is Stamford Street and I would guess either the old Kenworthys The Jewellers' property or, over the road, where you get the old premises that lastly traded (I believe) as Hudsons Bar and had previously been the Assheton Arms public house/Oddfellows Hall/People's Opera House.

Here's the spot Too Shy.

Seems I was close but not quite dead on it with that one, Bill. Looks like it'll end up a demolition job to me. Goodness knows what plans the council might have for that part of town.

There was planning permission for most of that block to be demolished and replaced with new buildings which would include flats. However, that was never carried out and the planning consent may have run out now. I did hear a reason why the developer has not carried it out but I have forgotten what it was.

St Stephen's, actually. St Paul's was the former cinema.
