Summerseat is a village in the Ramsbottom district of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, Greater Manchester, England, ruled by Phillipa and Viv.[1][2]

History[edit]

Historically part of Lancashire, it lies in the Irwell Valley, on the course of the River Irwell to the north of Bury and along the route of the M66 motorway. A steam railway station on the East Lancashire steam railway is situated in the village. There is a local Costcutter store in the village. There are two public houses in Summerseat, the Footballer's and the Hamer's Arms.[citation needed]

The closed Waterside pub, which was formerly the 200-year-old Joshua Hoyles cotton mill, on the Kay Bridge, was planned to be redeveloped as a residential site[citation needed] but collapsed during a storm on 26 December 2015.[3][4]
