Walton’s – Ashton Under Lyne

William Walton’s and Sons – 152 Stamford Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 6AD

Stamford-Street-Ashton-under-Lyne

Founded in 1832 – when Stamford Street looked a lot like this.

Much has changed during the ensuing years, Walton’s it seems has not.

On Monday 24th October 2011 I had the privilege of meeting current owners Margaret and Dave, spending time chatting and taking photographs.

Thank you.

They tell their own tale – take a look.

  1. I used to go in here with my mum as a kid … she was a cake maker so we went in a fair bit. I used to love exploring the shop while mum chatted to the owners. Such a cool place hope it stays around for many years to come it really is part of Ashton’s heritage. Do you know what the old machine upstairs was used for?
