|- Succeeded by||County Borough of Rochdale|
|Status||Township (? - 1894)|
Wardleworth was a township at the geographic centre of the Parish of Rochdale, in Salford hundred, Lancashire, England. The principal estate of this township was Buckley. Though the administrative territory has long been abolished, the name continues as a geographic reference frame for that part of Rochdale.
Wardleworth was a township that included territory to the northeast of the town of Rochdale, including the hamlets of Buckley, Crankey Shaw and Hamer Fold, and, although close to the village of Wardle, Wardleworth did not contain this settlement, which was instead within the neighbouring township of Wuerdle and Wardle.
In 1830, Wardleworth was recorded to have 6,451 inhabitants.
