The town of Bury in Greater Manchester has an important claim to fame – Sir Robert Peel, founder of the Metropolitan Police (and where we get the name ‘Bobbies’ from) was once a resident here; in fact you can see a memorial to him outside the church. Located just under eight miles from Manchester, Bury is also close to Rochdale and Bolton, making it a popular commuter base. Once part of Lancashire, the town used to be known for its textile industry during the industrial revolution, but times have changed. Now you’re more likely to find local residents commuting to work in Manchester or Bolton than you are working in the town itself, which means the roads in the area are particularly busy during rush hour in the morning and early evening.
All this traffic increases the risk of accidents, so if you have been the unlucky victim of a road traffic accident here, calling our Bury accident claims helpline is a wise move. It’s free to call Accident Advice Helpline, and our helpline is open seven days a week.
