Ince-in-Makerfield or Ince is a regenerated township in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England.

Historically in Lancashire, Ince is contiguous to Wigan and is a residential suburb. Divided by a railway line into two separate areas - Higher Ince and Lower Ince, from 1894 Ince was an urban district of the administrative county of Lancashire and in 1974 became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan.

Industries included coal mining, stone quarrying for the railways, and one cotton mill. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal passes through Higher Ince and 16 of the Wigan flight of locks are within the township.
