Heywood lies on the south bank of the River Roch, conveniently located just a short distance from Central Manchester yet within a few miles of the impressive Pennines.
The town is famed for its part in the Industrial Revolution playing a prominent role in textile production and mining, specifically the cotton trade.
Surrounded by legend, Heywood is known by locals as “Monkey Town”, the light-hearted folklore still doing the rounds is that Heywood men used to have tails and the stools and benches in Heywood pubs had holes in them for the tails to fit through.
