Fairfield station serves the area of Tameside in Greater Manchester, and lies just three miles east of Manchester Piccadilly. The station dates back to 1892, when it was opened by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, and known as Fairfield for Droylsden - it replaced an earlier station from 1841 found to the east of the present site. Although Fairfield is a large suburban area, the station sees very little passenger traffic and has no Sunday service. Originally part of Lancashire, the suburb of Fairfield sits on the A635 road, to the south of the Ashton Canal. The area was famous for cotton manufacture throughout the 19th century, and it was here that the W. M. Christy and Sons mill produced England's first woven towels. Fairfield is also home to the Fairfield Moravian Church and Moravian Settlement - the self-sufficient religious group was established in 1785, and its buildings retain much of their original charm. Guided tours are available.
