Summerseat is a village in the Ramsbottom district of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, Greater Manchester, England.[1][2] It lies in the Irwell Valley, on the course of the River Irwell to the north of Bury, along the course of the M66 motorway.

It is popular with visitors for its picturesque scenery,[citation needed] but also because there is a station on the East Lancashire steam Railway situated in the village. There is also a local Costcutter store in the village. There are two public houses in Summerseat, The Footballers and The Hamers Arms and the carpark of the now closed Waterside pub is a popular dogging site.
