Heywood is a town located historically in Lancashire, but now resides within the Greater Manchester boundaries. It boasts a population of over 28,000 people. This town is situated in between Middleton, Rochdale, Bury and the Pennines.
The busy town has been nicknamed Monkey Town since 1857. This is due to a local legend that men from Heywood used to have tails and that public houses had holes in their benches for tails to fit through.
Heywood is surrounded on all sides by Green Belt, variously consisting of wooded river valleys and high moorland in the north, and flat farmland in the south, making this a fabulous place to live if you are looking for a mix of urban and country living.
Heywood is well-known for Queen's Park, with tranquil gardens and a picturesque lake for visitors to enjoy, It is not only a Green Flag Park it is also a great day out for all the family. Events are held every weekend and the park can also be the starting point for walks into the Ashworth Valley and along the River Roch.
