Borough in England » Greater Manchester

The Metropolitan Borough of Trafford is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, England. It has a population of 210,145 (Census 2001) and includes the towns of Altrincham, Sale, Stretford, and Urmston.

The borough was formed on April 1, 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972 as a merger of the boroughs of Altrincham and Sale, along with Bowdon and Hale urban districts and part of Bucklow Rural District, all previously in Cheshire, along with the borough of Stretford and the urban district of Urmston, both previously in Lancashire.

The River Mersey flows through the borough, separating North Trafford from South Trafford. Historically the Mersey also acted as the boundary between the ancient counties of Lancashire and Cheshire. Not all services are provided on this geographical basis, the locality of Partington is often included as part of North Trafford due to its proximity to the Urmston area.
