St Michael's Church, Flixton; Tower and East Wall
The Parish Church of St Michael and All Angels is located on Church Road in Flixton. Its architectural style is a blend of gothic and classical. The church is built with a warm sandstone on a bluff above the River Mersey valley.

It is difficult to establish the origins of the church but records show that the Norman Lord of Manchester gave it away as a dowry for his daughter in 1150. The rough-hewn stone of the east wall dates back to the fifteenth century and the east window dates from 1853.The Ascension window in the south aisle is in the neo-classical style.

The church underwent major internal restoration in 1877.
