I see about 17.

dgnr8; Safeways in Chorlton is now Morrisons. They took them over after all.

And yes, jrb it was on the old lists that were deleted, but I'm just concentrating on town and the quays. It's been there for probably a year now.
I know they don't count, but seeing as the place has never been mentioned in a crane count thread in the entire of history... Three large mobile cranes in Ashton-Under-Lyne!
We aren't counting mobiles here!

Duh. That's why I said they don't count... :weirdo: It's just the first time three large mobile cranes have been in Ashton at the same time (excluding The Moss).
