Whiplash Injury in Standish


Standish is a town in the Greater Manchester area, previously located in Lancashire. The name Standish, comes from two Old English words meaning stone (staen) and a park or enclosure (edisc). There are some remnants of the town’s past such as the mediaeval Market Place where the old stocks are still in position, and there is also a mediaeval cross there and a well which dates back to the 14th century. The parish church of St Wilfred is a Grade I listed building which was founded in the early 13th century. St Wilfred was at various times, Bishop of Ripon, Hexham and York. The early church had fallen into a state of “grete ruyne and decaye” by 1544 and later it was substantially rebuilt. Now, as a listed building its future seems certain.
