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".
