Bury is a town and borough in Greater Manchester, in the North West of England. Bury is pronounced “Berry”. Bury is the largest part of the metropolitan borough of Bury which includes Prestwich, Tottington, Ramsbottom, Radcliffe, and the largely residential area of Whitefield.
Bury, “home of the Black Pudding”, has existed in various forms since the Industrial Revolution when it was a mill town based around the production of textiles. It has grown rapidly over the past decades to become the heart of a metropolitan borough. The borough stretches from wealthy Prestwich and Whitefield (Manchester’s suburbia, with thriving, long-established Jewish populations), in the south, past the historically industrial town of Radcliffe to the pleasant small town of Ramsbottom, in the north, bordering Rossendale.
