St. Michael's Church, Wincle

Dedicated to St Michael, also known as the Archangel Michael, who from the 4C has been regarded as the healing angel and protector of the Church. St. Michael is also considered the patron saint of police officers, paramedics, firefighters and the military as well as the sick and suffering.
The earliest extant reference to a church being built on this site is in 1647, as recorded on the lintel over the former chancel door. The location was possibly the site of an ancient Neolithic burial mound. The first church building was likely to have been constructed partly of timber and plaster as a chapel of ease under its mother parish of Prestbury. Unfortunately many of the earliest records detailing the history of the church and parish have been destroyed.
