Former Denton & Haughton Co-operative Society Store
Former Denton & Haughton Co-operative Society Store
The Co-operative store and hall on Ashton Road at the corner of Amelia Street was erected in 1893.

The building is of Accrington Nori brick construction and it has two ornate Dutch (or Flemish) gables on the Ashton Road frontage. The walls are relieved by stone dressings and the first-floor windows have chevron-shaped brick arches and stone cills. The large hall on the first floor is accessed from the Amelia Street corner.

The Denton & Haughton Co-operative Society was registered in 1867 and the first co-operative hall on, or near, this site was originally the Ashton Road Trinity Wesleyan Church that was bought from the church authorities in 1872 for 500. In 1968 the Denton & Haughton Co-operative Society amalgamated with the Manchester & Salford Co-operative Society. Following a series of complicated mergers, the British co-operative movement became the Co-operative Group Ltd in 2007, trading as, 'The Co-operative'. LinkExternal link

Denton Link Road
According to the council website LinkExternal link "Tameside Council has been successful in securing 1.67 million from the Greater Manchester Growth Deal Round 2, which will deliver a new relief road linking the A6017 Ashton Road at the M67 Junction 1 slip road to the A57 Hyde Road in Denton. The proposal seeks to relieve congestion to reduce traffic delays, improve air quality and road safety for the travelling public and the population of Denton. Alongside these improvements the road will also facilitate the comprehensive redevelopment of the former Oldham Batteries Site.

The road runs east from a traffic signal controlled junction on Ashton Road along the southern boundary of the M67 onto Edward Street. It then runs south to the A57 Hyde Road, where a new traffic signal controlled junction will be provided.

The works will start in February 2016 with an anticipated completion of the road in December 2016. The works will be undertaken over four phases as follows:

Phase 1 Howard Lane February to April 2016
Phase 2 Edward Street May to June 2016
Phase 3 Hyde Road/Edward St Junction July to September 2016
Phase 4 Ashton Road/Howard Lane October to December 2016"
