St Michael Church in Wincle

St Michael's Church is in the village of Wincle and is an active Anglican parish church.  It is part of the Peak Parishes Benefice.

 

The original church was built in 1647 on the site of a Neolithic burial mound.A tower was added about 1815, and the rest of the church was rebuilt in 1882 by Edward Witts. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.

 

Wincle and its neighbour Danebridge together form one of Macclesfield Borough's most picturesque settlements, straddling either side of the River Dane where it separates Cheshire from Staffordshire. Wincle is geographically centred around the attractive St Michael's Church and adjacent village school, with spectacular moorland views across to the Roaches, Shutlingsloe and Hanging Stone as well as lush woodland and drystone-walled pastures. Such rich scenery and well known pubs for eating and drinking, makes Wincle a favourite place for walkers and other visitors.
