Bury: Exploring the history-filled town in Greater Manchester

MM went to Bury for the day to explore the town centre and visit the Bury Arts Festival.

The Borough of Bury is a market town on the River Irwell and was historically a part of Lancashire.

Bury is the birthplace of Robert Peel, former Prime Minister of the UK and the founder of the Conservative Party and the Metropolitan Police.

You can visit the site of Bury Castle which was constructed in the 1400s and was a moated manor house, and it now its remains are listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

MM explored the sights at the weekend.
