Ramsbottom is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, located 12 miles from Manchester. It lies in the southern Pennines and its population is just over 17,000 people and the location grew rapidly in the 19th century as a manufacturing and mill town as a part of the industrial revolution. Among its several public houses is the Grant Arms which in the 1990s was part-owned by actor Philip Middlemiss (Des Barnes).

In 1972, the legal wife of Harry Bates was living in the town while Harry himself was with his common-law wife Rita Littlewood (then going under the name Rita Bates) in Weatherfield.
