Cadishead is a suburb and the most southwesterly settlement within the City of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England.

Cadishead was located in Lancashire until 1974, but it did not receive any definition as a specific type of place. It was located in Barton-upon-Irwell township (which was a registration sub-district) until 1894 when it became part of Irlam Urban District Council.

Until the early 19th century most of the area was part of the peat bog known as Chat Moss, but by 1805 work had started to reclaim the land. The opening of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1894 had a major effect on the subsequent development of Cadishead.
