St. Petersfield

St Petersfield is a dynamic new business quarter that provides a new gateway to the town centre of Ashton-under-Lyne and is a strategic regeneration priority for Tameside Council.  Starting in Henry Square the development stretches along Old Street leading occupiers to the retail centre of this historic market town.  Independent and national retailers along with food operators are all within a short walk as are regular rail and bus connections.  Furthermore St Petersfield benefits from open spaces, ample car parking and is within half a mile of Junction 23 of the M60 motorway.
