Warrington Street
Warrington Street
From a seat under cover next to a sandwich stall on Ashton Market. The sun was shining when I ordered my tea and sandwich but as it was being prepared the sun disappeared under a black cloud that dropped hail and heavy rain. As I sheltered I took this quick shot of Warrington Street. Until around the 1970s it was a busy road with two-way traffic but now it is pedestrianised although a river seemed to be running along that morning. The market ground is to the left. To the right are Marks & Spencer, Topman Topshop and McDonald's.
