Dumplington is an area of Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, which is dominated by the Trafford Centre shopping complex.

Dumplington was one of several hamlets in the township of Barton-upon-Irwell, in the ancient ecclesiastical parish of Eccles in the hundred of Salford. Its name derives from the Old English dympel and ing and tun which means an enclosure by a pool.[1] The hamlet lies six miles south west of Manchester city centre.[2]

Dumplington was recorded in the Middle Ages in 1225 in land leases between Sir Robert Grelley and Cecily, daughter of Iorwerth de Hulton and Siegrith de Dumplington. John son of Thomas de Booth was the landowner in 1401.[3]
