HistoryEdit

Outwood was an area in the township of Pilkington in the ancient parish of Prestwich-cum-Oldham in the historic county of Lancashire. It was once called Outwood of Pilkington[3] and is marked as Outwoods on the Yates Map of 1787[4] and on the later Greenwood[5] and Hennet maps.[6]

Under the Local Government Act 1894, Outwood was established as a civil parish and became part of the Bury Rural District in the administrative county of Lancashire, England.[7] In 1933, Outwood civil parish was abolished and its former area was divided between Kearsley, Radcliffe and Whitefield urban districts.[8]
