Miners march through Ashton
While I was doing some research for Ian McCartney to commemorate his twenty years as MP I came across this photo of miners,trades unionists and members of the public marching through Ashton to stop the pit closures proposed by Michael Heseltine in the late eighties. I found it interesting because as well as being a good photo it captured a moment that will never be repeated. As I remember it the march ended up in Stubshaw Cross Labour Club.
Were you or members of your family in this photo? If so I would like to hear from you
