We opened our Ashbourne branch in 1980, in Victoria Square – which, according to local historians, has also been called The Butchery and The Shambles in years gone by.
The building lies within the town’s conservation area, and when the branch underwent refurbishment in 2011 we consulted with planners from Derbyshire Dales District Council, to ensure it remained in keeping with the town’s traditional image.
Ashbourne is a picturesque, thriving market town – also known as ‘the Gateway to Dovedale’ – famous, amongst other things, for its annual Royal Shrovetide Football match. The game is played on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, when every business in the town – including our branch – is closed for safety reasons!
Our Ashbourne branch couldn’t be easier to get to, being on bus routes 441 and 442 and the bus stop being just a one-minute walk away. Alternatively, if you’re driving to the branch there is a free car park about five minutes on Cokayne Avenue (sat-nav DE6 1EJ). The branch is a short walk away.
