Five Thousand Acres of Old Ashton - The History of the Limehurst Rural District

£29.99

Product description

Some minor fading to front of dust jacket at spine. Internally clean and bright.

The late Mrs Winifred Brown is best known for her monumental book England in Ashton-under-Lyne, published in 1961. This however was not her first venture into local history. In the late 1940's she wrote this book which was the first and only history of the townships of Alt, Bardsley, Crossbank (Lees), Hartshead, Littlemoss, Waterloo and Woodhouses and its 300 pages also contain much information about Ashton-under-Lyne, Oldham and Saddleworth. First printed in a very small edition, this important record of the local heritage has long been unobtainable. It is now however available once more in this limited edition which will make a valuable edition to the bookshelves of both casual readers and local historians.
