Jewish Community of Greater Manchester
City and Metropolitan County of Manchester
Greater Manchester, a metropolitan county established in 1974 in North West England, covers the City of Manchester and surrounding areas. In comprises ten metropolitan boroughs, namely the City of Manchester, the City of Salford, Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan. In 1986, Greater Manchester lost its administrative powers becoming purely a ceremonial county. Accordingly, each of the metropolitan boroughs effectively became unitary authorities. The metropolitan county includes certain localities, such as Salford and Trafford that form a single conurbation along with Manchester, while others, such as Bolton, Rochdale and Wigan, are separate towns.
