Description:The camera is looking north west along Ashwood from its junction with Wood Street. Off to the right is Cornwall Street, and beyond that, Friar Street. The housing has been redeveloped. Wood Street was the old road and Ashwood was laid out in the mid 19th century ..."Ashwood,joining Wood Street by the parsonage, was laid out. Detached houses with gardens were built on its south side at the east end and terraced houses on the north side at its west end." (British History Online, Longton, pp 224-246).
