Eccles is a town in the City of Salford, whose development is closely related to the establishment of the parish church of St Mary, c. 1100, and from which it takes its name. The town's economy shifted away from agriculture with the industrial revolution and the construction of textile mills, of which some survive. Famous for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway of 1830, the world's first passenger service, the line is also noted for the first recorded accident, with the death of politician William Huskisson at Eccles. Today the town is a mix of surviving Victorian architecture and modern tower blocks. Swinton is also in the City of Salford and the seat of Salford City Council. Originally a hamlet specialising in pig farming, from which its name is taken, Swinton is now a commuter town, close to Manchester city centre. Like Eccles, farming gave way to mills, industry and coal mining, with important road and railway links seeing the development of Swinton Park, as documented in Eccles & Swinton Through Time.
