Hale has been since 1974 a village and electoral ward within the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford, in Greater Manchester, England. It is contiguous with the southeast of Altrincham, about 9 miles (14 km) southwest of the city of Manchester.
The earliest documented reference to Hale is in the Domesday Book of 1086, although the name of the settlement is probably as old as 7th or 8th century. The area was mostly agricultural. Hale grew in the Middle Ages to the point when Hale Barns was established as a separate settlement.
Hale was in Cheshire until 1974. During its time in Cheshire it was in the Bucklow Registration District from 1837 until 1930; and in Bucklow Rural District from 1894 until 1900 when it was made an Urban District.
