Farnworth, Bolton, Greater Manchester, England, Great Britain (Farnworth, Bolton in Greater Manchester, located north of Wales in central England.)
Farnworth is a town and an unparished area within the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton in Greater Manchester, England. It is located 2.3 miles southeast of Bolton, 5 miles south-west of Bury, and 9 miles northwest of Manchester.
Historically a part of Lancashire, Farnworth lies on the River Irwell and the River Croal.
Farnworth derives from the Old English fearn, fern and worth an enclosure. Farnworth was recorded as Farneworth and Farnewrth in 1278 and 1279 and Ffornword in a land survey of 1282.
Farnworth was originally a hamlet in Barton. In the 13th century it was held by the Lords of Barton and Manchester. By 1320 Adam Lever, Richard Hulton and Richard Redford held the manor as tenants. Later the manor was acquired by the Hultons of Over Hulton. In 1666 there were 91 hearths in Farnworth liable to pay tax. The commons were enclosed in 1798. There was a watermill on the River Croal.
