Chapelry History

Swinton St Peter is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Lancashire, created in 1806 from Eccles, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

SWINTON, a chapelry, in the township of Worsley, parish of Eccles, hundred of Salford, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 5 miles (W. by N.) from Manchester, on the road to Wigan. A large pile has been erected here of late years, by the guardians of the Manchester poor-law union, for training up orphans and other unprotected children. The building is in the Elizabethan style, of red brick with stone dressings, the main front being of imposing aspect, and 400 feet in length; it will accommodate a thousand children, and there are at present about half that number within the walls. The cost of erection was about £40,000. The chapel of Swinton, dedicated to St. Peter, is a cruciform structure, built by subscription in 1791, since which it has been twice enlarged. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Vicar of Eccles; net income, £126. There are places of worship for Wesleyans, Independents, Unitarians; and a Church Sunday and infant school.
