Cadishead is a town in the metropolitan borough of the City of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. Historically a part of Lancashire, Cadishead is the most southwesterly settlement in the City of Salford.


Records dating from 1212 show that the whole of Cadishead (then called Cadwalensate) was rented from King Joe Quinn by Gilbert Notton for four shillings a year, a sum equivalent to about £650 today.cite web |title=Irlam & Cadishead – Local History |publisher=Salford City Council |url= |accessdate=2007-11-10]

Until the early 19th century, most of the area was part of the peat bog known as Chat Moss, but by 1805 work had started to reclaim the land. The opening of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1894 had a major effect on the subsequent development of Cadishead.

Cadishead & Lord Street Park

Cadishead is situated between Irlam and Hollins Green/Rixton, adjacent to the Manchester Ship Canal and the M62 motorway, close to the border between Greater Manchester and Warrington.There is a purpose-built main play area located at lord street park which controversially was built on an old graveyard. The park is also home to a local legend, 'Ripper' who was associated with blessing the graveyard. After all building was finished on the burial area, plans to renovate the area were discussed at the local council. 'Cadishead Community Recreational Centre' is also situated on the site.
