Fairfield is a suburb of Droylsden on the A635 road in Tameside, in the English county of Greater Manchester, and formerly in Lancashire. It is just south of the Ashton Canal. In the 19th century, it was described as "a seat of cotton manufacture." W. M. Christy and Sons established a mill that produced the first woven towels in England at Fairfield Mill.
Fairfield is the location of Fairfield High School for Girls, Fairfield railway station and a place of worship. The community has been home to members of the Moravian church for many years after Fairfield Moravian Church and Moravian Settlement were established in 1783.
