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 -
