City of Salford

Borough in England » Greater Manchester

The City of Salford is a local government district of Greater Manchester, England, with the status of a city and metropolitan borough. It is named after its largest settlement, Salford, but covers a far larger area which includes the towns of Eccles, Swinton, Irlam and Worsley amongst others.

The borough was formed as part of the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, and is an amalgamation of five former local government districts. It is bound on the east by the River Irwell, which forms its boundary with the city of Manchester, and by the Manchester Ship Canal to the south, which forms its boundary with Trafford.

The borough, which lies directly west of Manchester, has a population of 218,000, and although some parts are highly industrialised, densely populated, and contiguous with one of the United Kingdom's major cities, around one third of the district consists of rural open space, for the most part due the territory in the western half stretching across an ancient peat bog known as Chat Moss.
