Old Moat is an electoral district or ward in the south of the City of Manchester, England. Voters from this ward elect three councillors to Manchester City Council. Currently all three councillors, Andrew Fender, Suzannah Reeves and Jeff Smith are members of the Labour Party. The Labour Party has held all the seats in the ward since 1986. The "Old Moat estate" is a large estate of 1920s built social housing named after a former manor house with a surrounding moat, which was the seat of the lord of the manor, and was situated in what is now the heart of the estate. The site of the manor house is marked by a plaque on number 22 Eddisbury Avenue. The housing is now mostly owned by Southway Housing Trust. The area is served by Old Moat Primary School, on Old Moat Lane.
