English: Openshaw is a ward of the city of Manchester, in Greater Manchester, North West England. It lies about two miles east of Manchester city centre. Historically a part of Lancashire, Openshaw was incorporated into the city of Manchester in 1890. Its name derives from the Old English Opinschawe, which means an open wood or coppice. The ward forms part of the specially designated New East Manchester area, and is undergoing extensive redevelopment under the East Manchester Regeneration Scheme
