Summerseat is a village in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, Greater Manchester, England, directly south of Ramsbottom.


Historically part of Lancashire, it lies in the Irwell Valley, on the course of the River Irwell to the north of Bury and along the route of the M66 motorway. A steam railway station on the East Lancashire steam railway is situated in the village. There is a local Costcutter store in the village. There are two public houses in Summerseat, the Footballer's and the Hamer's Arms.

The closed Waterside pub, which was formerly the 200-year-old Joshua Hoyles cotton mill, on the Kay Bridge, was planned to be redeveloped as a residential site
