Urmston
covers an area of 4,799 acres (19 km²). The town has early medieval origins, and until the arrival of the railway in 1873 was a small farming community. The railway acted as a catalyst, transforming the town into a residence for the middle classes. Today, Urmston

History[edit] In 1983, during an excavation by South Trafford
Trafford
Archaeological Group, fragments of Roman pottery were found in the area now occupied by the cemetery – previously the site of Urmston
Urmston
Old Hall – suggesting that there may have been a Roman settlement on the site.[2] In the early 13th century, Lord Greenhalgh and his family lived at Highfield House (under what is now the M60 motorway). Shortly after the Norman conquest of England, between 1069 and 1070, William the Conqueror
William the Conqueror
led a military campaign against the Saxon Earl Edwin, who ruled England
England
north of the River Mersey. On the campaign's successful conclusion, William gave his kinsman Roger de Poictou all of the land between the River Mersey
River Mersey
and the River Ribble. Part of this land was in turn given to Albert de Greslet, who towards the end of the 12th century, bestowed as much land as a team of oxen could plough in one-year on Orme Fitz Seward, the son of Edward Aylward.[3] It is probable that the name Urmston
Urmston
is derived from Orme's Easton, or Ormestun, the "tun" or dwelling of Orme Fitz Seward. The Manor of Urmston
Urmston
was rented by a family using the local surname. The earliest known member of the Urmston
Urmston
family is Richard de Urmston, who was recorded in 1193–94 as giving 40 shillings "for having the king's good will".[4] Orme Fitz Seward's land passed to Richard de Trafford
Trafford
in the 13th century.[5] The de Trafford
Trafford
family later lost the land, but won it back as the result of a duel.

Urmston
Old Hall was the home of the manorial lord, and a centre of power in the area during the Middle Ages. The Old Hall was completely rebuilt in brick and timber in the late 16th century. New Croft Hall, also in Urmston, was the residence of a wealthy freeman and may have been moated. Urmston
Urmston
was only one of three manors in Trafford
Trafford
to have had two medieval halls, the others being Hale and Timperley. Neither of the halls has survived to the present day.[6] Farming was the main occupation in Urmston
Urmston
until the early 19th century, when weaving became a significant source of employment, although this later declined due to competition from large industry. In 1848, the population was recorded as being 771, with around 80% of the land being farmed.[7] The opening of the Cheshire Lines Railway in 1873 allowed the town to grow as a commuter town: between 1871 and 1901 the population grew by over 650%, from 996 to 6,594. By 1901, farming had virtually died out, and the town became a residence for the middle classes.[8] In 1948 the Minister for Health, Aneurin Bevan, conducted the symbolic inauguration of the National Health Service
National Health Service
at Davyhulme's Park Hospital, now renamed Trafford
Trafford
General Hospital.[5] The area was home to the first District heating
District heating
system in England. In operation by 1948, a boiler house supplied hot water to 200 homes on a newly built housing estate. The water was heated with low-grade fuels such as peat and coke, with houses built in groups of four for better efficiency.[9] Governance[edit]

Once a township in the parish of Flixton, Urmston
Urmston
became an urban district of the administrative county of Lancashire, under the Local Government Act 1894. The Local Government Act 1972
Local Government Act 1972
abolished the Urban District of Urmston
Urmston
and in 1974 Urmston
Urmston
became a district of the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford, in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester. The parliamentary constituency of Stretford
Stretford
and Urmston
Urmston
was formed in 1997. Kate Green, a member of the Labour Party, became the MP at the 2010 General Election, with a majority of 8,935, representing 48.6% of the vote. The Conservatives took 28.7% of the vote, the Liberal Democrats 16.9%, the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
Independence Party 3.4%, the Green Party 2.0%, and the Christian Party 0.4%.[10] Urmston
Urmston
is one of the four major urban areas in Trafford, the other three being Altrincham, Sale and Stretford. In local elections for Trafford
Trafford
Council, Urmston
Urmston
is split into four wards: Davyhulme
Davyhulme
East, Davyhulme
Davyhulme
West, Flixton and Urmston.[5] Like every other ward in Trafford
Trafford
they are each represented by three local councillors, giving Urmston
Urmston
12 of the 63 seats on Trafford
Trafford
Council; as of the 2012 local election nine of these were held by the Conservative Party, and three by Labour.[11] The wards elect in thirds on a four yearly cycle. Geography[edit] Further information: Geography of Greater Manchester

Urmston
Urmston
occupies an area of 7.5 square miles (19.4 km2), at 53°26′55″N 2°22′29″W / 53.44861°N 2.37472°W / 53.44861; -2.37472 (53.4487, −2.3747); it is approximately 137 feet (42 m) above sea level at its highest point.[12] The land is relatively flat, sloping gently from north to south.[4] Urmston's climate is generally temperate, with few extremes of temperature or weather. The mean temperature is slightly above average for the United Kingdom. Annual rainfall and average amount of sunshine are both slightly below the average for the UK.[13] Urmston
Urmston
comprises the areas of Davyhulme, Dumplington, Flixton and Urmston,[5] with the River Mersey
River Mersey
forming the southern boundary.[14] For administrative reasons, Partington
Partington
is sometimes considered to be part of Urmston. The most southerly part of Urmston
Urmston
lies within the flood plain of the River Mersey, an area known as Urmston
Urmston
Meadows, part of the Mersey Valley. Much work was carried out in the 1970s to canalise the Mersey, in an effort to speed up the flow of floodwater and thus reduce the risk of flooding.[15] Upstream emergency floodbasins such as Sale Water Park, lying just to the east of Urmston, have also been constructed.[15] The M60 Manchester
Manchester
orbital motorway passes through the northern half of Urmston, from southeast to northwest, and the M62 motorway

Economy[edit]

The ASK development in Urmston, viewed from the new precinct. New apartments are under construction.

The Trafford
Trafford
Centre, a large shopping and leisure complex, is at Dumplington, north of Urmston. Some locals felt that it brought about the decline of Urmston
Urmston
Precinct, the town's central shopping area – dating back to the 1960s – where many units closed or became "pound shops".[27][28] Beginning in 2007, Urmston
Urmston
Precinct was demolished and a £45 million redevelopment of the site got underway, to include 140,000 square feet (13,006 m2) of retail and leisure space and 144 apartments.[29] This redevelopment project is now known as Eden Square.[30] A new Sainsbury's
Sainsbury's
opened in the summer of 2009 as did the relocated local library[31] with the rest of the new shopping precinct expected to follow later in the year.[32] This was followed by the opening of an Aldi

Both shows are performed at the Poolside Theatre within the Urmston
Urmston
Leisure Centre. Its youth section performs a show in May at St Antony's Catholic College in Urmston.[38] Canterbury Players is a local amateur dramatic society. Performances are given on stage at the Davyhulme
Davyhulme
(Wesley) Methodist Church located in Brook Road, Flixton. Most famed in recent times for the notable appearance of Garry Dennis Carr, a famed socialite and artist from the area. Young people spilled out of the church and car park just to get a glimpse of him and rumoured friend Noel Fielding (of the Mighty Boosh fame)[citation needed] In the mid-20th century there were 20 cinemas in Trafford, of which the only survivor is the New Curzon, in Princess Road. It opened in 1931 as the Curzon. It was converted to a twin cinema and bingo club in the 1970s, and re-opened under its present name of the New Curzon in 1980, after a £100,000 conversion.[39] Since 2003, the building has been shared with Flixton Dance Studio. Recently, due to financial reasons, the New Curzon has been forced to close down. The Beatles[edit] In 1963 the council booked the Beatles to play at the Urmston
Urmston
Show at Abbotsfield Park in Chassen Road on Monday 5 August. At the time of the booking, they were not well known, but had risen in popularity by the time of their appearance.[40] David Hamilton who was the compere, for which he received ten guineas (£10.50), commented: "The boys were smuggled in in a van ... screaming girls rushed the stage, trying to get hold of their idols ... it was certainly a hard day's night."[40] Sport[edit] Urmston
