The Farnworth, Kearsley and Stoneclough Team is located at the south-eastern end of the Bolton Deanery.
Farnworth is a lively small town with all the usual amenities.
Stoneclough Parish is mainly made up of two villages, Ringley and Prestolee, which lie in the Croal valley abutting the country park. Historically a centre for papermaking, the two villages are now mostly residential areas, with numerous pubs and restaurants.
Kearsley Moor Parish is situated above the valley, lies on the main road to Manchester, and is a close-knit community with strong ecumenical links between the various churches and a Roman Catholic Shrine, situated within it.
