New Moston is a district within the City of Manchester, in North West England.

Historically in Lancashire, it is around five miles from Manchester city centre.

Originating as a residential hamlet, it occupies an area on the eastern border of the township of Moston, bordering the Whitegate area of Chadderton and Failsworth in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. [1]

The area is home to New Moston Primary School, St Margaret Mary's Primary school, New Moston Library and New Moston Athletic football club, who play in the Chapel Road 6-a-side League.

In New Moston over half of the homes are privately owned.[citation needed]
