The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Ashton-under-Lyne - Portland Basin

A warm and sunny Sunday morning so a trip out on the Metro to Ashton and the Portland Basin Heritage Centre.

Well worth the effort - a pleasant morning was had.

The Portland Basin is the meeting place of the Ashton Canal and the Peak Forest Canal .

The museum displays the history of Ashton and it's industry and development. Shops,churches,houses and pubs have been recreated inside the museum- a trip down memory lane !!!

Here are a few snaps -

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
