Explore the industrial history of Dukinfield

Situated south of the River Tame in Greater Manchester, Dukinfield is grounded in an industrial past. The town developed thanks to the Industrial Revolution, so it's home to plenty of stunning 19th-century buildings, including the town hall. The historic Old Hall Chapel is another landmark worth seeing: built in the 15th century, it was ruined in a fire in the 1970s, but remnants of the beautiful architecture still stand today.

See Manchester's beauty spots

Dukinfield and neighbouring Ashton-under-Lyne are home to some of Greater Manchester's most beautiful nature spots. Visit Daisy Nook Country Park for an afternoon by the Medlock River, or walk up Hartshead Pike for stunning views across Ashton. There's a different kind of beauty at Park Bridge. It's home to the old Park Bridge Ironworks, and you can even see some of the machinery used in the 19th century. There's a heritage centre, too, so you can learn all about the site's history.
