Bury is a town in Greater Manchester, England.It lies on the River Irwell, 8.9 km east of Bolton, 9.5 km west-southwest of Rochdale, and 12.7 km north-northwest of the city of Manchester. Bury is surrounded by several smaller settlements, which together form the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, with Bury as the largest settlement and administrative centre.
Bury is well known for its open air market - Bury Market - which is well known for its traditional Black pudding.
In the post-war period, there was a major decline in the cotton industry, and in common with many neighbouring towns, Bury's skyline was soon very different, with countless factory chimneys being pulled down and the associated mills closing their doors forever. The old shopping area around Princess Street and Union Square was demolished in the late 1960s, and a concrete precinct emerged to replace it.
This development was replaced by the Mill Gate Shopping Centre in the late 1990s. Another large shopping area is located around the Rock. The main street is populated mainly by independent shops and food outlets. At the top end of the street, however, is a modern shopping area. It has a multi screen cinema, bowling alley and department stores including Marks & Spencer, Debenhams and Primark.
