Summerseat

Welcome to Summerseat!

Summerseat is a truly picturesque village that lies to the north of Bury in the Irwell Valley.

Peel’s family were responsible for radically changing Summerseat. They opened a great number of mills, bringing workers and thus the need for more houses in the area. Eventually the railway came to Summerseat, linking it to Bury and to the wider world.

Summerseat contains a number of great pubs including the Hamer’s Arms and the Footballers Inn, both of which are part of our Rail Ale Trail.┬áThere is also a popular garden centre nearby and the stop is a perfect starting point for long walks and tours of the local countryside perfect for those sunny afternoons!
