Swinton and Pendlebury was a local government district of the administrative county of Lancashiremarker, England. It was created in 1894 as an urban district and enlarged in 1934, gaining the status of municipal borough.

Constituent Civil Parishes

It was created as an urban district in 1894 by the Local Government Act 1894, consisting of the civil parishes of Swintonmarker and Pendleburymarker. When Barton upon Irwell Rural Districtmarker was abolished in 1933 Swinton and Pendlebury gained part of the Cliftonmarker parish (an area of 1,052 acres). In 1934 Swinton parish and Pendlebury parish were abolished and their former area was merged with that of the former Clifton parish to form a combined Swinton and Pendlebury parish which was coterminous with the urban district boundaries.

The municipal borough was abolished in 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972. Its former area was used to form part of the present-day City of Salfordmarker metropolitan borough in the Greater Manchestermarker metropolitan county. The former Swinton and Pendlebury Town Hall is currently used by Salford City Council as the Salford Civic Centre.
