Parish History[edit | edit source]

WINCLE, is a chapelry, in the parish of Prestbury, union and hundred of Macclesfield, North division of the county of Chester, 5½ miles (S. E. by S.) from Macclesfield. The chapel was erected about 1642.[1]

Wincle St Michael became a parish in 1725 a chapelry in the ancient parish of  Prestbury, Cheshire.

Wincle’s parish church was built in 1647 on the site of a Neolithic burial mound, and heavily restored in 1882. According to Sir Philip Brocklehurst’s book on the area, it was once said that a certain hospital in Manchester procured the bulk of its anatomical subjects from Wincle church’s graveyard, thanks to an unscrupulous sexton who was bribed to dispatch the bodies the night after they were buried.
