English: Simister is a small village in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, Greater Manchester. Historically part of Lancashire, it is located between the districts of Prestwich, Rhodes and Langley. The area is located near to a motorway junction often called "Simister Island" which links the M62, M66 and M60 motorways. Thousands of vehicles a day use this motorway intersection, so the hum from the traffic is often regarded as a nuisance but noted of a part of the village by the residents. Even though the village's proximity to Manchester means the residential population is mainly made up of commuters, the village keeps a rural feel with much agricultural activity. The main thoroughfare, Simister Lane, is often used as a rat run for cars travelling to and from Prestwich, Middleton and Junction 19 of the M60.
