Former Christ Church  Ashton


Jim Amy Kirkpatrick The first Christ Church Ashton was built in 1845 and in use until 1915. The south wall was built using ‘scrap’ stone so that the north wall (facing the road) would be built using good stone. John Bobier, stonemason, and John Shore, carpenter, were responsible for the construction..
Ted Hurdis Our confirmation class from St James had our first communion at the Ashton Anglican church.
