History of Manchester City

History of Manchester


Manchester city is in the historic county of Lancashire, but it includes an area south of the River Mersey in the historic county of Cheshire. Manchester is the nucleus of the largest metropolitan area in the north of England, and it remains an important regional city, but it has lost the extraordinary vitality and unique influence that put it at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution.The name Manchester originates from the Latin name Mamucium or its variant Mancunio. ... The suffix -chester is from Old English ceaster ("Roman fortification", itself a loanword from Latin castra, "fort; fortified town")

Historians have traced the first substantial evidence of human inhabitation in Manchester to Britain’s Roman occupation between 43 AD and 410 AD. Roman General Julius Agricola’s fort came about around 70 AD because the Manchester was a naturally defensible location at the intersection of rivers Irwell and Medlock. 

In 1717 it was merely a market town of 10,000 people, but by 1851 its textile (chiefly cotton) industries had so prospered that it had become a manufacturing and commercial city of more than 300,000 inhabitants, already spilling out its suburbs and absorbing its industrial satellites. By the beginning of the 20th century, salients of urban growth linked Manchester to the ring of cotton-manufacturing towns—Bolton, Rochdale, and Oldham, for example—that almost surround the city, and a new form of urban development, a conurbation, or metropolitan area, was evolving.

More History...

By 1911 it had a population of 2,350,000. In the following years, however, the pace of growth slowed dramatically. If the 19th century was Manchester’s golden age, when it was indisputably Britain’s second city, the 20th century was marked by increasing industrial problems associated with the decline of the textile trades (the result of foreign competition and technological obsolescence).

In the 21st-century United Kingdom, Manchester is a centre for cultural, creative, and digital innovations the world over. For example, it is home to MediaCityUK, Europe’s second-largest media and digital hub. If you want a home and workplace that encourages a growing skills base, talent, and global connectivity, Manchester is an excellent choice. 

As a tourist destination, Manchester is easily one of the most exciting cities to visit in England. There’s something for everyone, including historical splendour and plenty of entertainment. Some of the popular attractions include Castlefield, Imperial War Museum North, National Football Museum, and Manchester Cathedral.

It is typically held in Harry’s Bar, Wigan (where else?), the world pie eating championships have been going since 1992 and now even feature a vegetarian pie option for competitors.
