Audenshaw Trough
Erected at the junction of Manchester Road and the Audenshaw Road in Audenshaw in 1879, this cattle and horse drinking trough is made of polished Cornish granite. It is a low elongated rectangular trough comprising two basins, one raised above pavement level the other positioned above it and set on two piers at either end of the lower basin. Spur stones protect the front faces of the piers. The front of the trough carries the inscription "THE RIGHTEOUS MAN REGARDETH THE LIFE OF HIS BEAST". Nowadays it is used as a flower tub.

Behind it is a 1900 passenger tram electricity transformer SJ9097 : Tram Transformer Pillar.
