Ashton Library now a Grade II listed building

Ashton Library has recently been listed as a Grade two building for the following reasons

1. It is a good example of an early 20th century former lecture hall and library constructed at the expense of the benefactor Andrew Carnegie and displays significant architectural presence

2.The building possesses a variety of original fixtures and fittings within an internal layout which is little changed despite some modernisation
