Before Gtr Manchester was created, Manchester was pretty much split into Lancashire and Cheshire. So its pretty understandable why people may still say it is part of Lancashire.

If Manchester were to be in Lancashire, then the inevitable question rings: What the hell is located in Greater Manchester???

It wasn't meant to be a generally inquisitive post, but rather more of a fun one.

Manchester is in greater New Hampshire


Birmingham is on the moon too.
Postally its lancashire in the north, cheshire in the south. administratively its greater manchester. if you go in even further detail, parts of the area that are postally manchester, are administratively parts of the boroughs surrounding-oldham, rochdale etc.

my address is middleton, which is part of rochdale, then manchester, lancashire. even though we're under oldham council and actually live in chadderton :confused:

There is a Birmingham on the Moon apparently. Someone said about Manchester being in New Hampshire, which is in the USA, so I used another English place name outside of England :biggrin:
