Welcome

 

Welcome to the Prestwich and Whitefield Heritage Society.

The Society was set up in 1999.

We seek to research, record, celebrate and preserve the history and heritage of Prestwich and Whitefield and their immediate environs.

The Society has Talks and Meetings about once a month in the Church Inn on Church Lane, Prestwich and everyone is welcome to attend.

There are visits to places of interest near and far.

The Archaeology Group digs on sites in the neighbourhood on the summer weekends.

Please explore the website and get in touch if you have any questions or comments.

Use the blue Navigation Bar at the top of this page to find your way around.

Or click on the links on the left hand side.
