The Metropolitan borough of Bury was formed in 1974 from six towns: the County Borough of Bury, the boroughs of Prestwich and Radcliffe, urban districts of Tottington and Whitefield, and part of the urban district of Ramsbottom; all were previously in Lancashire. Some suburbs of the borough are (to the west): Ainsworth, Bradley Fold & Walshaw, and to the north: Brandlesholme, Holcombe, Summerseat, Edenfield, Nangreaves & Walmersley. For geographical convenience, I have included some items in Edenfield, just into neighbouring Rossendale, in this section.
