Welcome to Heywood
Welcome to Heywood
A boundary sign welcoming folk to the suburban town of Heywood in the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England. This particular sign is located in Heap Bridge (an outlying suburb of Heywood) along the A58 "Bury New Road", and lies along the boundary between the boroughs of Bury and Rochdale.

The emblem on the welcome sign is the coat of arms of the former Heywood Municipal Borough Council, which was abolished in 1974.

Behind the sign is a Transport for Greater Manchester bus stop, and beyond that, a pub.
