Market Fire

Huh. My bus to work was diverted away from Ashton town centre this morning. I could see fire crews working at the bottom of the street. Turns out the market building, a huge listed building hundreds of years old, had been burning since 3am. The market hall was the focus of the whole town, and now only the outer walls remain. Ashton will seem very strange from now on.
