Map of Manchester Gangs & Ghetto Areas

The city of Manchester in the UK has various neighborhoods, including some located within the streets of the Manchester ghetto, mostly based around housing estates or complexes. These areas include Moss Side, parts of Longsight along both Northmoor Road and Stockport Road, Ordsall and Pendleton in Salford, sections of Moston, Gorton around Mount Road, Claremont Road in Rusholme, parts of Old Trafford, and other areas throughout Greater Manchester.

In Manchester, the population consists of 70% white, 18% Asian, and 9% Black, as well as other ethnic groups including Arabs. This leads to the low-income areas and some of the roughest neighborhoods in Manchester to be characterized by diversity and a mix of ethnicities, which is also evident in Manchester gangs.

In Manchester, new street gangs appeared in the 1990s and 2000s, though there had been some gangs in the past. These modern Manchester gangs increased in numbers, and though some have disbanded, others still operate in different parts of the city.

During the 1970s and 1980s, and even more so in the 1990s and 2000s, the Manchester ghetto neighborhoods saw an increase in gang activity. This was largely due to the rise of narcotics trade, gang conflicts, territorial disputes, and poverty and lack of opportunities.

Some of the largest and most notorious areas of the Manchester ghetto have been  places like Moss Side. Rebuilt following World War II, beginning during the 1960s, and greatly continuing through the 1970s and 80s, Moss Side began to see a large migration of Asians and West Indians, making it one of the largest ethnic communities in Manchester. Years later, Moss Side’s reputation reigned throughout the UK, often resembling South London areas.

Greater Manchester has several communities consisting of housing estates and complexes, such as Wythenshawe which is located on the outskirts of the city and has a population of over 100,000. Other examples include Brinnington in Stockport, Racecourse Estate in Sale, Lime Side in Oldham, and Moston and Blackley in northern Manchester, only to name a few. These housing estates were constructed during the 1950s and 1960s, and while some have led to the formation of Manchester gangs and street activity, others have not.
