The name "Ashton" was derived from the Old English for "settlement by ash trees". The town name was then extended in the 19th Century to distinguish it from other places with the same name to become "Ashton-under-Lyne". The town was first recorded in 1227 when it was granted a charter for a weekly market. In the 19th century, the town saw rapid growth and had a flourishing cotton spinning and linen weaving industry. This was largely due to the opening of the Bridgewater Canal and Ashton Canal in 1796. The town has a rich heritage and is home to several Victorian buildings such as the Ashton Arcade, the Old Caf�, and Ashton Old Baths, as well as Ashton Market Hall.
