Location Overview

Forming part of the borough of Oldham, Failsworth grew up as a rural agricultural town northwest on Manchester. It is twinned with Landsberg am Lech in Bavarian Germany. Newer developments such as the Ben Brierley Wharf have been constructed to help modernise the area and the housing available. It is a quiet town that offers a peaceful lifestyle. The town has the large metropolitan areas of Manchester and Oldham nearby but also enjoys a picturesque rural setting.
