Ashton-under-Lyne Corporation – Ultimate

Ashton Corporation - Ultimate Bus Ticket

It would only be correct for Ashton Corporation to have tickets pre-printed by Williamson Company Ltd as they were based in Ashton-under-Lyne, after a quick trip on Google I do not think they are still in business. For some reason on the 1½d ticket the abbreviation for Corporation ends with an ‘N’ but on all the rest it ends with the ‘P’ it also has three small boxes on its lower half instead of two. As with other municipalities in the Manchester area Ashton-under-Lyne Corporation Transport were taken over in November 1969 by the South East Lancashire and North East Cheshire Passenger Transport Authority (SELNEC).
