Salford is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester in North West England. The largest settlement in the metropolitan borough is Salford, from which it inherited City status. Other settlements include Swinton (where the city council is located), Eccles, Pendlebury, Broughton, Kersal, Pendleton, Worsley, Walkden, Irlam, Cadishead, Claremont, Wardley, Monton, Barton and Boothstown.
The Local Government Act 1972 created the metropolitan borough on April 1, 1974, based on the former County Borough of Salford (including Pendleton, Langworthy, Broughton, Weaste, Ordsall and Seedley), the Municipal Borough of Eccles (including Monton, Winton and Barton-upon-Irwell), the Municipal Borough of Swinton and Pendlebury, the Irlam Urban District and the Worsley Urban District (including Walkden).
The metropolitan borough is divided into five formal districts: Salford, Eccles, Worsley, Irlam & Cadishead, and Swinton & Pendlebury, based on the areas of the predecessor districts. The borough is entirely unparished.
