About Salford

Salford is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester. Salford is sited in a meander of the River Irwell, which forms in part its boundary with the city of Manchester.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Salford became a major factory town and inland port. Cotton and silk spinning and weaving in local mills attracted an influx of families and provided Salford with a strong economy. Salford Docks was an important dockyard of the Manchester Ship Canal. By the end of the 19th century Salford had an enlarged working class community and suffered from overpopulation due to the influxes of people from other areas seeking work in the mills.
