This suburb of Manchester has been documented with a variety of names over the centuries including Lewensholm and Lywenshulme. It lies approximately 4 miles south-east of the city centre.

Historically, Levenshulme was a wealthy middle class neighbourhood until many houses were built in the late 19th century in the typical terrace style of ‘2 up 2 down’ with an outside toilet.

The village became a township and was incorporated into Manchester in 1909.
