Ashton Under Lyne – A brief local history

Economic Shifts and Urban Development (1970s-1990s)

The latter half of the 20th century the town faced challenges of deindustrialisation, leading to efforts to revitalise the local economy through urban regeneration projects. The development of the M60 motorway in the 1970s improved connectivity, making Ashton-under-Lyne more accessible and attractive for new businesses.

The 1980s and 1990s saw significant investment in the town centre, with the construction of new shopping centres and the refurbishment of historic buildings. The Ladysmith Shopping Centre, opened in 1981, became a central hub for retail and social activities. The town also embraced cultural and recreational developments, such as the establishment of the Portland Basin Museum, which celebrates the town’s industrial heritage.

Modern Transformation (2000s-Present)

Entering the 21st century, Ashton-under-Lyne has continued to evolve and adapt. The town has undergone substantial redevelopment, with modern housing projects, improved public transport links, and enhanced public services. The opening of the Metrolink tram system in 2013 connected Ashton-under-Lyne directly to Manchester city centre, promoting economic growth and attracting new residents.

Today, Ashton-under-Lyne is a vibrant and diverse community that honours its rich industrial past while looking forward to a bright future. The town’s blend of historical landmarks, modern amenities, and strong community spirit makes it a unique and dynamic place to live and work.


From the industrial challenges of the early 20th century to the modern transformations of today, Ashton-under-Lyne has demonstrated resilience and adaptability. Its history since 1920 is a testament to the strength and ingenuity of its residents, who have continually worked to build a prosperous and thriving community.
