Ashton Parish Church

The Church of St. Michael and All Angels is the Parish Church for Ashton under Lyne. It is a Grade I Listed Building, one of 116 surviving mediŠval parish churches in the North West

The church dates back to at least 1262; is believed that there was a church on this site before the Norman Conquest as the Domesday Book mentions a St Michael's Church in the east of the ancient parish of Manchester. The present building dates from the fifteenth century although much of the structure was re-constructed in Victorian times.

The church tower is 145 feet high and has a peel of thirteen bells.
