History of Trafford

History of Trafford

Trafford is a borough in the southwestern part  of Greater Manchester, including towns such as Sale and Altrincham, lies south of the River Mersey in the historic county of Cheshire. However, the historic county of Lancashire encompasses the urban core of the borough north of the Mersey, including Stretford, the Trafford Park Industrial Estate, and Old Trafford, home of both the Lancashire County Cricket Club and the football (soccer) club Manchester United.

Old Trafford was a crossing point over the River Irwell in ancient times. The name Old Trafford possibly derives from the time when there were two Trafford Halls, Old Trafford Hall and New Trafford Hall. ... The name of the area around Old Trafford Hall may subsequently have become shortened to Old Trafford.The places called Trafford in Cheshire have as their first element Old English trog 'trough', 'valley'; while Trafford in Lancashire was originally called Stratford 'ford on a Roman road' but now most people know it as the name of the football stadium which is actually the second biggest football stadium in England.

More History...

The early industrial growth of the borough was stimulated by the building in 1761 of the Bridgewater Canal, which runs north through Trafford Park and southwest through Stretford, Sale, and Altrincham. Development accelerated after 1894 with the completion of the Manchester Ship Canal, which forms the western boundary of the borough. This made Manchester a port and provided the impetus for the development of the Trafford Park Industrial Estate, a centre for manufacturing, engineering, and storage and distribution. Office development is expanding. Parts of the borough near Cheshire have served as residential suburbs for Manchester businesspeople since the 19th century.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Trafford

Yes I have been watching Trafford develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential.If youre a football fan keep reading , did you know that the original plan of Old Trafford in the early 20th century was to build a stadium that could hold around 100,000 people. The budget for the entire project was about £60,000.When construction started, it became clear, however, that a stadium of this size would cost a lot more. An extra £30,000 was needed to reach this capacity, so instead, it was advised to reduce the capacity to just 80,000.This might not sound like a lot, but with inflation in mind, this would be over £7.2 million today!


Trafford is the home of several major sports teams, including Manchester United Football Club and Lancashire County Cricket Club (LCCC). Manchester United began as Newton Heath L&YR F.C. in 1878. The team plays at Old Trafford football ground, which is sometimes used as a stadium for international matches. Manchester United have won the FA Cup 12 times and been the Premier League champions 13 times (since the league was formed 20 seasons ago) and were Football League champions seven times in the years prior to that. The club last won the Premier League in 2013. LCCC started as the Manchester Cricket Club, and represents the historic county of Lancashire. The club contested the original 1890 County Championship. Old Trafford Cricket Ground – Lancashire's home ground – stages international matches, including Test matches and One Day Internationals. The team has won the county championship eight times outright (with one shared) and were the county champions in 2011 - the county's first outright triumph since 1934, but were then relegated to the second division in 2012.

Trafford also is home to not one but two medieval castles. Dunham Castle is an early medieval castle in Dunham Massey. It belonged to Hamon de Massey, and was probably still standing in the early 14th century. The bailey was landscaped into the grounds of Dunham Massey Hall and its moat turned into an ornamental pond. Watch Hill Castle is an early medieval motte-and-bailey castle on the border of Dunham Massey and Bowdon. It is listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The motte and surrounding ditch still survives, although it had fallen out of use by the 13th century.
