Ashton-in-Makerfield is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, Greater Manchester. It is situated 4.2 miles south of Wigan, 7 miles north-northwest of Warrington and 16 miles west of the city of Manchester. In 2001 it had a population of 28,505.
Historically a part of Lancashire, Ashton-le-Willows was anciently a township in the parish of Winwick and hundred of West Derby. With neighbouring Haydock, Ashton-in-Makerfield was a chapelry, but the two were split in 1845. The place has long been a centre for the manufacture of locks and hinges, but also sits on the Lancashire Coalfield, and so was a coal mining district.
This pleasant suburban town is close to a number of top Merseyside attractions including the fascinating safari park at Knowsley, which first opened to the public in 1971.
Also nearby are Walton Hall Gardens, the enchanting Norton Priory Museum and Gardens and the land of knights, otherwise known as Camelot Theme Park.
The name Ashton derives from Old English and means the “farmstead where the ash-trees grow”; it is a common name and is found locally inAshton upon Mersey in Trafford andAshton-under-Lyne in Tameside The town’s name was recorded as Eston in 1212. Later, the suffix “in-Makerfield” was added, which relates the name of an old district of which Ashton was a part; Makerfield derives from the Celtic for a wall or ruin and the Old English word feld, meaning “open land”.
Ashton-in-Makerfield was part of the St. Helens Area of the South Lancashire Coalfield. The St Helens Area lay to the South West of the Wigan area and occupied around 60 square miles,kirting Wigan, Warrington, Widnes and to within eight miles of Liverpool.
In 1867 there were 13 collieries in the district of Ashton-in-Makerfield. Others followed including Brynn Hall Colliery, owned by Edward Frederick Crippin, the Mains and Park Lane Collieries. Park Colliery and some of those open in 1867 remained productive until the 1950s.
A number of Ashton’s coal miners made a significant impact on modern British history, including: Stephen Walsh M.P.; William Keneally, V.C. and Lance-Corporal in the 1st Lancashire Fusiliers; and Joe Gormley, President of the National Union of Mineworkers in the 1970s and 1980s.
In the late nineteenth century, the district was described by one observer as having “extensive collieries, cotton-mills, and potteries”, and famed for the manufacture of “hinges, locks, files, and nails”. Mills such as the Record Mill (Spinning), situated in York Road, and the Makerfield Mill,n Windsor Road, took over from home-working. Similarly, Thomas Crompton & Sons in Gerard Street, which would eventually employ around 1,200 workers, superseded the subcontracting system that sustained substantial numbers of locally based blacksmiths and other craftsmen.
As recently as the 1970s the district of Ashton-in-Makerfield had one of the highest proportions of derelict land, mainly in the form of spoil tips, left over from coal mining.Major land reclamation schemes have since completely transformed the area.
