Stalybridge is a town in Tameside, Greater Manchester, England, with a population of 22,568. This had increased to 23,731 at the 2011 Census.Historically a part of Cheshire, it is 8mi east of Manchester city centre and 6mi north-west of Glossop. With the construction of a cotton mill in 1776, Stalybridge became one of the first centres of textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. The wealth created in the 19th century from the factory-based cotton industry transformed an area of scattered farms and homesteads into a self-confident town. Due to the decline of the cotton industry in the first quarter of the 20th century and the development of modern low-density housing in the post-war period, the town is now semi-rural in character.HistoryEarly historyThe earliest evidence of human activity in Stalybridge is a flint scraper from the late Neolithic/early Bronze Age. Also bearing testament to the presence of man in prehistory are the Stalybridge cairns. The two monuments are on the summit of Hollingworthall Moor, 153yd apart. One of the round cairns is the best-preserved Bronze Age monument in Tameside, and is protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. A branch of the Roman road between the forts at Manchester and Melandra Castle is thought to run through Stalybridge to the fort of Castleshaw.
