Cheetham Hill is a district of Manchester, England located approximately two miles to the north of Manchester city centre.
Cheetham Hill is home to a mix of cultures. In the past it has been infamous for gang related violence, similar to areas such as Moss Side, Hulme and Longsight, but today the village and surrounding areas are rather cosmopolitan.
A large percentage of the housing in Cheetham Hill is under the control of Northwards Housing and other landlords.
The area is being heavily targeted for regeneration and, as such, is the beneficiary of part of a large government grant to improve homes in the area.
The village has three supermarkets along with many smaller retailers of varying sizes offering a wide range of goods and produce.
The Cheetham Hill Cricket Club was established in 1847.
Cheetham Hill is adjacent to Crumpsall, Salford and The Strangeways area of Manchester.
