HISTORY

TOPONYMY

Worsley
Worsley
is first mentioned in a Pipe roll
Pipe roll
of 1195–96 as Werkesleia, in the claim of a Hugh Putrell to a part of the fee of two knights in nearby Barton-upon-Irwell
Barton-upon-Irwell
and Worsley. There are many variations on the name; Werkesleia, 1195; Wyrkedele, 1212; Whurkedeleye, c. 1220; Worketley, 1254; Worcotesley, Workedesle, 1276; Wrkesley, Wrkedeley, Workedeley, 1292; Wyrkeslegh, Workesley, 1301; Worsley, 1444; and "Workdisley alias Workesley alias Worseley", 1581. The spelling of the name in early documents, suggests a Saxon
Saxon
origin. Ge-Weore, the Old English
Old English
form of the name, means "the cleared place which was cultivated or settled." The Anglo-Saxon
Anglo-Saxon
Chronicle contain no references to Worsley.

EARLY HISTORY

Two Roman roads run through the area. Connecting Mamucium (Manchester) with Coccium (Wigan), one passes through Worsley
Worsley
near Drywood, and over Mosley Common . The present-day A6 road follows part of the course of another Roman road, which passes through the northern part of the area near Walkden
Walkden
and Little Hulton . In 1947 a hoard of 550 Roman coins was found near a quarry in Boothstown
Boothstown
, dated to between AD 250 and 275, and in 1958 the head of a man was found on Worsley
Worsley
Moss. Named " Worsley
Worsley
man ", and originally thought to be no more than 20 years old, upon the discovery of Lindow Man
Lindow Man
it was re-examined and dated to approximately the 2nd century AD, in the Romano-British period . Francis Egerton, 3rd Duke of Bridgewater , built the Bridgewater Canal
Bridgewater Canal
and was directly responsible for much of the economic growth of Worsley
Worsley
through the latter part of the 18th century.

Worsley
Worsley
later fell under the control of the Anglo-Saxons
Anglo-Saxons
, who controlled much of the area around Manchester

and who also defeated the British at the Battle of Chester in AD 615. Edward the Elder rebuilt the fortifications at Manchester, and in AD 924 captured all the land between the rivers Mersey and Irwell , making it demesne in the Kingdom of Wessex
Kingdom of Wessex
. During the Middle Ages
Middle Ages
the area was covered with forests and marshlands . Thinly populated by craftsmen and serfs , Worsley
Worsley
grew as a settlement adjoining an ancient corn mill , close to the location of the present-day Worsley
Worsley
Road Bridge. Most farms throughout Lancashire
Lancashire
were small with their tenants dependent upon secondary employment, however in 1719 a John Kay of Worsley
Worsley
had five stirks , two bulls, 17 cows, "young cattle upon the moors", and a "cow at hire", all valued at £97 5s. Marl
Marl
was commonly used as a fertiliser, and is recorded in use in 1719. Wheeler's Manchester: Its Political, Social and Commercial History, Ancient and Modern (1836) states that about one-fifth of the land around Worsley, Astley and Tyldesley
Tyldesley
was in tillage , lower on average than the surrounding areas.

BRIDGEWATER ESTATES

Worsley
Worsley
was, originally, the largest manor of the seven ancient manors of the Bridgewater Estates. It was created by William I and held for him by the Barton family in thegnage , and for them by a Norman knight named Elias, who fought in the crusades . On his death in Rhodes
Rhodes
, the manor remained with Elias' son, whose family had by that time adopted the name of the village as its family name. On 23 June 1311 a substantial part of the Manor of Hulton was granted to the Worsleys. The family held both manors until the late 14th century, whereon they passed to the Massey family of Tatton , and then in the 16th century to the Brereton family of Malpas, Cheshire
Malpas, Cheshire
. The Brereton family added the Manor of Bedford (a small area of land to the west of Worsley) to the estate. Richard Brereton later married Dorothy Egerton, and upon his death the estates passed into the Egerton family.

In 1617 John Egerton , son of Sir Thomas Egerton , became Earl of Bridgewater . The Egerton family was descended from Sir Richard Egerton of Ridley, Cheshire . His illegitimate son, Thomas Egerton, was a prominent lawyer who served as Master of the Rolls
Master of the Rolls
from 1594 to 1603, and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal
Lord Keeper of the Great Seal
from 1596 to 1617 and also as Lord High Chancellor of England
England
. John Egerton succeeded to Worsley in 1639, and died in 1649. He was succeeded by the second and third Earls of Bridgewater. The title of Duke of Bridgewater was first given to Scroop Egerton in 1720. He devised a navigation system for Worsley which was not carried out. His son, the third Duke of Bridgewater Francis Egerton , was to build the Bridgewater Canal
Bridgewater Canal
.

The Duke purchased the Manor of Pemberton (near Wigan
Wigan
) in 1758, the Manor of Hindley in 1765, and the Manor of Cadishead
Cadishead
in 1776. Upon his death in 1803 he was succeeded by George Leveson-Gower, 1st Duke of Sutherland . In 1833 the estate was inherited by Gower's son, Francis Leveson-Gower who changed his surname to Egerton, and in 1846 became the Earl of Ellesmere
Earl of Ellesmere
. In 1836 he purchased the Manor of Tyldesley. He is recorded as saying that he found Worsley
Worsley
to be "a God-forsaken place, full of drunken, rude people with deplorable morals".

Worsley New Hall , designed by Edward Blore

INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Worsley
Delph as seen by Arthur Young in his 1771 book, A Six Months Tour Through the North of England. At this time there was only a single entrance to the mines. Worsley Delph in 2009. A single Starvationer boat can be seen on the left of the image. The grassed area between the two entrances was constructed during a 1960s restoration of the area.

Coal has been mined around Worsley
Worsley
from as long ago as 1376, originally in bell pits . The coal seams in the area tend to be fairly thin, slanting downwards from north to south, and so deeper mining became necessary during the 17th century.

With the onset of the Industrial Revolution
Industrial Revolution
and the growing use of steam power , there was a rapid increase in the demand for coal. The Duke's mines were among those supplying the surrounding districts but transport was both inefficient and expensive, and the mines also suffered from persistent flooding. His solution to these problems was to build a canal from Worsley
Worsley
to Salford , and an underground canal into the mines from Worsley
Worsley
Delph. The canal boats would carry 30 long tons (30 t) at a time, – more than ten times the amount of cargo per horse that was possible with a cart. The Duke and his estate manager obtained an Act of Parliament empowering them to begin construction on a planned route directly to Salford, avoiding the River Irwell
River Irwell
.

James Brindley
James Brindley
was brought in for his technical expertise and suggested varying the route of the proposed canal away from Salford and across the Irwell into Manchester. A second Act was secured for this variance, which included an aqueduct to cross the Irwell. This was built relatively quickly for the time; work commenced in September 1760 and the first boat crossed on 17 July 1761. The canal opened in 1761 and along with the stone aqueduct at Barton-upon-Irwell
Barton-upon-Irwell
, was considered a major engineering achievement. One writer said that when finished, it "will be the most extraordanary thing in the kingdom, if not in Europe. The boats in some places are to go underground, and in other places over a navigable river, without communicating with its waters ..."

Worsley
Worsley
Delph, now a scheduled monument , was the entrance to the Duke's underground mines. Two entrances, built years apart, allowed access to the Starvationer boats, the largest of which could carry 12 long tons (12 t) of coal. The entrances allow access to 46 miles (74 km) of underground canal on four levels, linked by inclined planes.

The burgeoning village became a hub of commercial activity. The Duke employed craftsmen to service a wide range of industries including boat-making, plastering , blacksmithing and mining. A local quarry supplied limestone , for which a kiln was constructed at the junction of Barton Road (B5211) and Stableford Road. A quarry at the Delph supplied building materials for the region, including the stone used to construct Brindley's aqueduct. To accommodate the workers needed for these industries the Duke built extra housing and cottages. In a diary entry of 1773, Josiah Wedgwood
Josiah Wedgwood
wrote of the area "We next visited Worsley
Worsley
which has the appearance of a considerable Seaport Town. His Grace has built some hundreds of houses, the Duke's warehouse and the works on what is now Worsley
Worsley
Green were demolished. Worsley
Worsley
Brook was culverted, and a memorial fountain to the Duke was built from the bricks of the works' chimney.

Although much of the industry that dominated Worsley
Worsley
was in decline, in 1937 Sir Montague Maurice Burton opened a clothing factory along the East Lancashire
Lancashire
Road . Built in the Art Deco

style, in 1938 the factory employed 3,000 people.

MODERN HISTORY

Under the Housing Act 1919 , large overspill estates were built by the council for veterans of the First World War
First World War
, but a larger change to the area came after the end of the Second World War
Second World War
, when the then County Borough of Salford was forced to rehouse many of its inhabitants. With little land left, 4,518 new houses were built in the urban district by the Worsley
Worsley
Project. 18,000 people were rehoused under the scheme, which included new facilities, shops and schools. Another housing estate was built during the 1970s to the north of Worsley
Worsley
Green.

In 1944, during World War II
World War II
, a flying bomb landed on a house near Worsley

stands about 206 feet (63 m) above sea level. Sheltered at the foot of a middle coal measure running approximately northwest and southeast across the area, the village lies along the course of Worsley
Worsley
Brook, which cuts through the ridge. The ridge also forms part of the northern edge of the Irwell Valley . The area is bordered on the north by the East Lancashire
Lancashire
Road , and on the south by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway and part of the Bridgewater Canal. The larger towns of Swinton and Eccles lie to the east and southeast respectively, and to the west the area is largely bordered by Chat Moss , open fields, and forest. The M60 and M62 motorways cut directly through the area.

The underlying measures of coal have proved important for the development of the area; it was around Worsley
Worsley
Delph that the settlement first began to grow. Parts of the area are within an indicated floodplain . Worsley's climate is generally temperate, like the rest of Greater Manchester. The mean highest and lowest temperatures (13.2 °C (55.8 °F) and 6.4 °C (43.5 °F)) are slightly above the national average, while the annual rainfall (806.6 millimetres (31.76 in)) and average hours of sunshine (1394.5 hours) are respectively above and below the national averages.

Village was in 1969 designated as a conservation area by the former Lancashire
Lancashire
County Council. Bisected by the A572 Worsley
Worsley
Road, the area covered about 34.25 acres (138,600 m2) of land and included 40 listed buildings, such as the Packet House, a telephone kiosk, and the Delph sluice gates, but this list has since increased to 48 listed buildings. Much of the area around the canal and Worsley
Worsley
Delph was restored and landscaped between 1966 and 1967 by the Worsley
Worsley
Civic Trust and the local council, ready for a visit by Elizabeth II
Elizabeth II
on 17 May 1968. As the canal passes through Worsley, iron oxide from the mines has, for many years, stained the water bright orange. The removal of this colouration is the subject of a £2.5 million remedial scheme, which was completed in 2004. This has not been successful and as of 2017 much of the canal centered on the Delph is still bright orange.

RELIGIOUS SITES

St Mark's Church, Worsley

Ellenbrook Chapel , the first church in Worsley
Worsley
was built in 1209 by the Worsley
Worsley
family. Methodism was first practised in the area in 1784, by the notable preacher Matthew Mayer. Later services were held in various locations around the area, and in 1801 a Methodist chapel was built along Barton Road. The foundation stone for St Mark\'s Church was laid on 14 June 1844 by George Granville Francis Egerton, the son of Francis Egerton. Designed by the architect George Gilbert Scott , the church was consecrated on 2 July 1846 by the Bishop of Chester, John Bird Sumner. The church tower is now home to the mechanism for the Bridgewater Clock from the Bridgewater workshops at Worsley
Worsley
Green. The clock strikes 13 times at 1 pm, originally so that workmen did not miss the end of their dinner break. Many gravestones in the churchyard were cut from rock sourced at Worsley
Worsley
Delph. Following a proposed hotel development in 1981 the area around the church and vicarage was designated a conservation area.

SPORTS
