Pendlebury has been since 1974 a suburban town in the City of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies 4.1 miles (6.6 km) to the northwest of Manchester city centre, 3.4 miles (5.5 km) northwest of Salford, and 5.9 miles (9.5 km) southeast of Bolton.

Prior to 1974 Pendlebury was in Lancashire. In 1934 it joined with the neighbouring settlements of Swinton and Clifton, to form the municipal borough of Swinton and Pendlebury. A centre for coal mining for many years, Pendlebury saw extensive coal extraction from several collieries until the closure of Agecroft Colliery in the 1990s.
