SOAG exists to protect, preserve and enhance Ashton Gardens

The Ashton Institute before its removal



The Gardens were originally know and St George's Gardens but they fell into disrepair and were almost built on. It was at this time that Lord Ashton stepped in and paid for the Council to buy the gardens for the people of St Annes. They were renamed Ashton Gardens in his honour.
