The following photos are all from a book called “Hale and Ashley, the past 100 years” compiled by Denise Laver and Douglas Rendell and published by the Hale Civic Society in 1987, which I found in the local collection in MMU library.

Do you have any photos of Ashley you would like to share on this site? Please do get in touch; joanne.phillips@stu.mmu.ac.uk.
