Early history

Winton, along with some of its neighbouring villages, including Barton and Monton, is believed to be Saxon in origin. However, Winton is not in the Domesday Book although neighbouring Barton is. Winton is believed to have been originally known as Withinton. In 1262, Richard de Winton was granted 7 acres (28,000 m2) of land by former landowner, Thomas Grelley, at a rate of one shilling and two pence (1s 2d or 6p) per year. These 7 acres (28,000 m2) grew over the next few decades to become the hamlet of Winton.


Churches in Winton include the Roman Catholic Church of St. Matthew's, next to Winton Library on Worsley Road, and St. Mary Magdalene's Parish Church on Grasmere Crescent/Westbourne Road (a Grade II listed building). The Baptist church on Parrin Lane was destroyed in an arson attack in 2010. The oldest building is Magdalene Centre, formerly a school before Westwood Park was opened, dating from 1888.
