Denton is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside, in Greater Manchester, England. Historically part of Lancashire, Denton grew as a significant centre of hat manufacture, though today it is a predominantly residential town.It is five miles (eight km) to the east of Manchester city centre, and has a population of 36,591 at the 2011 Census, up from 34,286 in 2001.HistoryToponymyDenton probably derives its name from Dane-town, an etymology supported by other place names in the area such as Danehead-bank and Daneditch-bourne. The word 'Dane' is itself derived from Anglo-Saxon denu, dene, daenland, meaning a valley. So literally Denton means valley town.PrehistoryA Byzantine coin was discovered in Danesheadbank, dating from the sixth or seventh century, as part of the Denton coin hoard. The early medieval linear earthwork Nico Ditch passes through Denton; it was probably used as an administrative boundary and dates from the 8th or 9th centuries. A 300 m stretch is still visible on Denton golf course, about 4 m wide and 1.5 m deep.Middle AgesIn the early 13th century it lay within the Manor of Withington, a feudal estate which also encompassed the townships of Withington, Didsbury, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Moss Side, Rusholme, Burnage and Haughton, ruled by the Hathersage, Longford, Mosley and Tatton families.
