Wonderful end to a walk around Prestwich Clough terminating at St Mary's. This church has been used in Coronation Street for decades. Wonderful architecture and outlook, a mere few minutes from Prestwich Village and a deserved cup of tea after a brisk walk.

A visit to this old church is worth a visit more than 800 years old and worth a look. It is in Church Lane Prestwich. There is also some 17th century houses, and a Church Inn Pub where you can have lunch. Enjoy your visit....More
