Bury is situated at the northern point of Greater Manchester, outside the M60 with green, rolling countryside to its north. Although the town of Bury has a population of around 60,000, it is surrounded by settlements that form the metropolitan borough of Bury, home to closer to 200,000 people. Bury was a market town until the Industrial Revolution, when it threw itself wholeheartedly into the milling and weaving industries, and the town thrived, helped by the arrival of the canal and railway network in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Decline in Bury was quite severe as the cotton industry moved abroad, and by 1990 even the railway link to Manchester had been closed down. The town did go back to its roots somewhat and became a shopping and light manufacturing area, but its main purpose was to be a satellite and commuter town for Manchester. Bury Market has survived through thick and thin, however, and in these days of supermarkets and online shopping it is bucking the trend by not only being one of the largest open-air markets in the UK but also by actually growing. This trend was helped in 1992 when the old railway was repurposed as a Metrolink tram line right into the heart on Manchester.
Bury is quite often the source of jobs nowadays. The town is pretty well connected by road, with the M60, M62 and M66 nearby, and the large commercial areas of Manchester, Salford, Bolton and Rochdale all within striking distance. Although it remains an important commuter town for Manchester, industry and retail do play their parts in the local economy.
