Search St Wilfrid Churchyard:

Church of St Wilfrid is a church in Standish, within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, Greater Manchester, England, and is located on Market Place (SD561102). It is part of the Church of England and Anglican Diocese of Blackburn. It is a Grade I listed building.[1]

The church is believed to have been constructed between 1582 and 1584 and designed by L. Shipway. It is in a blended Gothic and Renaissance style.

The church is first mentioned in 1205 but the vast extent of the ancient parish with its eleven townships (Adlington, Anderton, Charnock Richard, Coppull, Duxbury, Heath Charnock, Langtree, Shevington, Standish, Welch Whittle and Worthington) points to a very early foundation.
