Cadishead is a suburb within the City of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. A profile of the ward conducted by Salford City Council in 2014 recorded a population of 10,739.[1] Historically in Lancashire, Cadishead is the most southwesterly settlement in the city of Salford.

History[edit]

The earliest record of Cadishead date to 1212, and show that the whole of Cadishead – then called Cadewalesate – was rented from King John by Gilbert Notton for four shillings (20p) a year, a sum equivalent to about £650 today.[2] The name derives from the Old English words wælla and set, and Cada, a personal name; it means the "dwelling or fold by the stream of a man called Cada".[3]

Until the early 19th century most of the area was part of the peat bog known as Chat Moss, but by 1805 work had started to reclaim the land. The opening of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1894 had a major effect on the subsequent development of Cadishead.[2][4]
