Worsley: Salford’s oasis
The twin cities of Manchester and Salford are developed, densely populated urban centres.
But on the very edge of Salford you will come across Worsley, a pleasant surprise with English village vibes. It’s just a 30-minute bus ride from the centre of Manchester where I live.
With its Tudor-style houses, caramel-coloured waterways and tranquil, unspoilt woodlands, Worsley feels a world away from the grittier parts of Salford.
The nearby M60 motorway may spoil the illusion, but this is a Greater Manchester village that’s a pleasure to wander around.
