Why Move to Sale
Sale is the largest town in Trafford, Greater Manchester. Located in the North West of the UK it sits on the south bank of the famous River Mersey.
The arrival of the Bridgwater Canal attracted new people to the town. However, Sales’s greatest expansion was experienced with the arrival of the railway in 1849. This triggered Sale’s growth as a commuter town for Manchester, leading to an influx of middle-class residents.
By the end of the 19th century the town’s population had more than tripled.
Today this Trafford suburb has recently been rated the “fourth best place to live in the country”, beating the likes of Altrincham and Didsbury. But why? One of the main reasons is the towns education provision with more than an average selection of Ofsted rated “outstanding” schools available.
Additionally, a host of major motorways connect the town to plenty of larger areas in the region. Its Metrolink system connects Sale with other locations in Greater Manchester and the local train station runs to Manchester Piccadilly, Stockport, and Chester.
European and international travel is also an option via nearby Manchester airport.
Residents enjoy the towns close knit community feel evident in all sorts of ways such as its many local clubs and associations. However, Sale really excels when it comes to open spaces. Boasting an enormous amount of green space and woodland, at sites such as Sale Water Park, Walton Park and Worthington Park.
Great schools, nature pursuits, inexpensive housing, and great accessibility, what’s not to like about Sale?
