We believe that a place of worship has been in Prescot since Anglo Saxon times. Indeed, the font inside the church, St Mary’s Church, dates back to Anglo Saxon times. Maybe the Eccles in Eccleston (an Anglo Saxon word for church), relates to the church at Prescot as we know how boundaries change over the centuries. Because there has been a place of worship at Winwick since Anglo Saxon times, maybe a route down Elton Head Road, and east through Burtonwood to Winwick, goes back that far.
