Ashton Allotment Action

Members of Ashton Allotment Action in Ashton Moss, Tameside have occupied a site of old allotments taken out of use next to the M60. The land was given by Tameside Council to a local estate agent in 1996. The group, inspired by the diggers, moved onto the site on the 23rd April 2011 and started to dig and cultivate the land.
