St Mary

Prestwich is not mentioned in the Domesday Book but there is evidence of a church on the site from at least 1200. The tower was built in about 1500 by the 1st Earl of Derby, and the body of the church was rebuilt during the early part of the 16th century. In 1872 a new chapel, the Birch Chapel, was added to the south of the chancel and to the east of the existing south Lever chapel; the Lever Chapel was rebuilt two years later.
