Ashton Under Lyne is an important commercial and cultural hub in the Greater Manchester region.
Portland Basin Museum is a popular attraction in Ashton Under Lyne and one that locals are extremely proud of. Detailing the area’s industrial heritage, the exhibitions and displays here feature a recreated 1920’s street. All taking place in a restored building, Portland Basin Museum offers tours through the past of Ashton and the surrounding area.
Stamford Park is a green space in Ashton Under Lyne that features woodland, trails, sports pitches and more. The reason this place is so popular with the locals might be the picturesque lake or the aviary, which features dozens of species of exotic and local birds. Each spring and summer, the flowerbeds here become a riot of colour and life with the blooming of a range of specimens.
Throughout the area, from Newton Wood to Ridge Hill, Floom’s Ashton flower delivery covers the entire town.
