Historically, Eccles was a market town and most famous for its cakes. Eccles offers many services and attractions for both residents and visitors. It is bordered by the Manchester Ship Canal to the south and the M60 motorway and Barton Aerodrome to the west. Over the past few years, Eccles town centre has seen many changes including the arrival of the Metrolink, a new bus station, a new supermarket and a retail park along with a new state-of-the-art health facility.
Along with the Eccles town centre there are also main shopping areas at Monton Village and along Liverpool Road offering a variety of independent and specialist retailers. In recent years, Liverpool Road has undergone regeneration work and there are now new homes in the area. A more stable housing market has been achieved through significant investment.
The whole of Eccles has exceptional public transport links and with the transport interchange and Eccles Rail Station in the town centre the rest of Greater Manchester is easily accessible.
Within a very short distance of Eccles, there are many other attractions of national importance, such as the Imperial War Museum North, The Lowry, Manchester United FC, the Trafford Centre and Manchester city centre.
Eccles holds three community network events per year these replace the community committee meetings. Each network event is themed around a particular topic of interest and anyone is free to attend.
To date they have proven to be extremely popular with many local people attending. For more information including dates, times and venues, or information on how to join the mailing list please see the get involved page.
Eccles community committee also holds a number of themed task group meetings that concentrate on delivering some of the community priorities. Please contact a member of the neighbourhood team for information on the task groups, or telephone 0161 603 4290 for dates and venues.
