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


Historically part of Lancashire, the village 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. The village has two public houses in Summerseat, the Footballer's[3] and the Hamer's Arms.[4]

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.[5][6]
