WINSTANLEY township, which comprises an area of nearly three square miles, is surrounded by the townships of Orrell, Pemberton, Ashton and Billinge. It is mostly occupied by the fine park of Meyrick Banckes, Esq., whose residence, Winstanley Hall, is within it. There are coal pits in the eastern part of the township. There are neither public houses nor schools within its boundaries, though access is easy to the neighbouring townships. The population in 1861 was 633, or about one person to every three acres. Chadwick Green is partly in this and the neighbouring township of Billinge.
