Ainsworth (archaically known as Cockend) is a small village—effectively a suburb—within Radcliffe, in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the western fringe of Bury, 2.2 miles (3.5 km) northwest of Radcliffe, and 2.9 miles (4.7 km) east of Bolton. The city of Manchester is 8.7 miles (14.0 km) south-southeast of Ainsworth.

Historically a part of Lancashire, Ainsworth was formerly a chapelry in the parish of Middleton and hundred of Salford. It was added to the Radcliffe Urban District in 1933. Author and ghostwriter Paul Stenning is a former resident and pupil of Ainsworth County Primary School.
