Gorse Hill is an area in Stretford, Greater Manchester, England. The population at the 2011 census was 11,894.[1] It is a residential area with two minor industrial estates on either side of the main A56 Chester Road, which divides the two halves of the ward. Gorse Hill Park is a park which has recently had its historic main gates renovated and sits in between the two halves of the ward also, bridging Chester Road and Talbot Road.[2] Gorse Hill is also the northernmost ward of Trafford council and is home to Trafford Town Hall, housing the council offices. Gorse Hill shares a border with Old Trafford ward, home to both Manchester United F.C. and Lancashire County Cricket Club.[3]
