About

Sitting in sight of the Pennine foothills astride the River Bollin, pretty Prestbury dates to Anglo Saxon times. Its original name was Preosta burgh meaning the borough or dwelling of the priests.

At the time of the Norman conquests, Prestbury Parish was the centre of 35 townships stretching 20 miles from north to south and 10 miles wide and it still has the remains of a Normal Chapel built in the 12th century in the grounds of the Parish Church.

The main street you see today is a Conservation Area dominated by the Grade One listed St. Peter’s Church, parts of which date to 1220, and a succession of black and white and also dark red Cheshire brick properties dating from the 15th,16th and 17th centuries. Several of the cottages on New Road were the traditional three-storey dwellings of silk weavers.
