Metropolitian Area Cities
Salford is in the metropolitian area of Manchester.
• Manchester


Originally a small village on the banks of the River Irwell, Salford along with it's neighbouring town of Manchester, saw massive growth as a result of the cotton and silk industries.
The opening of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1894 and the construction of the Manchester docks at Salford Quays gave this growth a huge boost.

A massive regeneration project in the 1960s saw the construction of over 30 highrise residential blocks, many of these buildings are now run-down and some have been demolished.

Salford along with Swinton, Eccles, Worsley, Cadishead, Irlam, Walkden and Little Hulton formed the new City of Salford in 1974.

In the late 1970s the Manchester docks suffered a huge decline in business due to more advanced technology such as Motorways.

This decline caused the docks to become abandoned and derelict.

In the 1990s a huge regeneration project at Salford Quays saw the construction of new high-tech office buildings at the Exchange Quay, Harbour City and Anchorage areas of the Quays.
The regeneration continued and a futuristic arts centre was built, known as The Lowry, named after the Manchester born artist.

2002 saw the completion of Daniel Libeskind's stunning Imperial War Museum North, standing across the Ship Canal opposite The Lowry, the intriguing building is based on the idea of a globe shattered into three pieces by war.

City Area: 37sq miles
Population: 220,000
