About Worsley

Just 20 minutes car journey away from the center of Manchester is the historic town of Worsley, which is best known for its scenic walks along the historic Bridgewater canal.

The Bridgewater canal was completed in 1761 and saw Worsley expand from a small village to an important town, which played a large role in the origins of the Industrial Revolution, with its canals, mines and supply of coal.

There are around 50 listed buildings in Worsley, including Worsley Old Hall which dates back over 900 years and was thought to once have been moated, the Packet House, a telephone kiosk and the Delph sluice gates which are is a protected scheduled monument.

Worsley Old Hall is a Grade II listed country house pub with very large gardens, and was once the home of the Dukes of Bridgewater

Worsley Woods is a fantastic green space in the heart of Worsley, containing sculptures, wild flower trail, and wonderful mock-tudor house called The Aviary.

Parts of Worsley are now being considered as World Heritage Sites, including the Worsley Delph, the Bridgewater Canal, and parts of Worsley Green.
