THE NORMAN CHURCH OF S PETER AT PRESTBURY, NEAR MACCLESFIELD

THE NORMAN CHURCH OF S PETER AT PRESTBURY, NEAR MACCLESFIELD

On the river Bollin, near Macclesfield, stands Prestbury, an old-world village that is the centre of the biggest parish in all Cheshire. Its glory is its church of S. Peter. There is beautiful Norman work in this fine old parish church, which boasts a Norman chapel and a doorway said to be the oldest in this part of England, and a chancel that dates from the early thirteenth century. Saxons also were here before Normans, and the site of the existing church was formerly that of a Saxon edifice.
