About the Event

Our beautiful church dating from the 14th century with records of a church on this site since 13th century, also doubles as Weatherfield Parish church on Coronation Street and has featured in many story lines over the years. But truth can be

stranger than fiction...

Especially for Prestwich Arts Festival: escorted guided tours at 1pm on 28th & 29th September will point out the graves of artists, poets and notable carvings, verses and monuments, some grade II listed. Though we may sneak the odd murder in too! 

Meeting point will be the Cenotaph at St Mary's Church. 

Free event - no booking required. Weather permitting - approx 45 minutes long. Presented by the St Mary's Churchyard Action Group.
