Whilst looking for a plant Nursery on Ashton Moss I found this great little website that has a very interesting Video "Forgotten Fields"  http://vimeo.com/55391518 (video about 15 minutes)

The video looks on how the first families from Ireland cultivated the Ashton Bog to create beautiful fertile ground for the production of Salad and Root crops.

There are some nice photographs of Grange Farm, Wellfield Nursery and Ashton Moss but also Glebeland Road Sale and Chat Moss Eccles.
