Chorlton cum Hardy

Chorlton-cum-Hardy is a suburban area of the city of Manchester, England. It is known locally as Chorlton. It is situated about 4 miles southwest of Manchester city centre. Pronunciation varies: "chorl'ton" and "chol'-on" are both common.
Historically, Chorlton was a village on Lancashire's southern border with Cheshire, separate from Manchester. It was incorporated into the city of Manchester in 1904. Chorlton-cum-Hardy should not be confused with Chorlton-on-Medlock, which is a different area close to the centre of Manchester. Chorlton borders Stretford, Sale, Didsbury, Withington, Whalley Range and Old Trafford. The River Mersey runs past Chorlton along its southern boundary.
