It lies close to the River Irwell, 3.3mi north of Manchester city centre, 3.1mi north of Salford and 4.7mi south of Bury.Historically a part of Lancashire, Prestwich's early history is marked by its status as the seat of the ancient parish of Prestwich-cum-Oldham, in the hundred of Salfordshire. The Church of St Mary the Virgin—a Grade I listed building—has lain at the centre of the community for centuries.The oldest part of Prestwich developed around Bury New Road and is known as "Prestwich Village". There is a large Jewish community in Prestwich and Whitefield, neighbouring Broughton Park in Salford and sections of Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall, parts of the City of Manchester, which forms the second-largest Jewish community in the United Kingdom.HistoryToponymyPrestwich is possibly of Old English origin, derived from preost and wic, which translates to the priest's farm.
