Ashton-under-Lyne is a market town in TamesideGreater Manchester, England.[1] The population was 45,198 at the 2011 census.[2] Historically in Lancashire, it is on the north bank of the River Tame, in the foothills of the Pennines, 6.2 miles (10.0 km) east of Manchester.

Evidence of Stone AgeBronze Age, and Viking activity has been discovered in Ashton-under-Lyne. The "Ashton" part of the town's name probably dates from the Anglo-Saxon period, and derives from Old English meaning "settlement by ash trees". The origin of the "under-Lyne" suffix is less clear;[3] it possibly derives from the British lemo meaning elm or from Ashton's proximity to the Pennines.[4] 
Until the introduction of the cotton trade in 1769, Ashton was considered "bare, wet, and almost worthless".[4] The factory system, and textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution triggered a process of unplanned urbanisation in the area, and by the mid-19th century Ashton had emerged as an important mill town at a convergence of newly constructed canals and railways. Ashton-under-Lyne's transport network allowed for an economic boom in cotton spinningweaving, and coal mining, which led to the granting of municipal borough status in 1847.
In the mid-20th century, imports of cheaper foreign goods led to the decline of Ashton's heavy industries but the town has continued to thrive as a centre of commerce[5] and Ashton Market is one of the largest outdoor markets in the United Kingdom.

England Missionary Training Center (November 23, 2016- December 13,2016)


The England Missionary Training Center is a marvelous place of learning and spiritual growth where thousands of new missionaries have received training before being deployed to their mission assignments. The England MTC first opened in 1985 and was located on the London England Temple complex. In 1998 the MTC was relocated to the Preston England Temple complex. During the dedication services, President Gordon B. Hinckley said that the MTC would be “a place where the Spirit of the Lord would quicken and enlighten newly called representatives of the restored gospel as they prepare to embark in the service of God.”
The England Missionary Training Center is located in the beautiful countryside of western Lancashire, adjacent to the market town of Chorley, approximately eight miles from the heart of Preston, and is a part of the beautiful Preston Temple complex. 
The England MTC primarily serves the British Isles missions of London, London South, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and Scotland/Ireland. However, missionaries who will serve in France, Germany, Russia, and many other European missions are also trained here.
The area around the England MTC is rich in LDS Church history. The first overseas missions of the Church began in Preston, England, shortly after Elders Heber C. Kimball and Orson Hyde arrived in Liverpool in 1837. The first baptisms were performed in the River Ribble in March of 1837, and in the next few months, in spite of much persecution and difficult challenges, nearly 1,800 people from the surrounding villages accepted baptism. Most of these early English converts traveled to the American West and formed the backbone of the growth of the Church in its early years.


The weather at the England MTC is characterized by minimal variation between seasons—winters are relatively mild (average January temperature of 39°F [4°C]) and summers are quite cool (average July temperature of 59°F [14°C]). Light, misty rain is common, falling on more than half of the days of the year. The best chance of prolonged sunny weather occurs from March through May.
