Over Wyresdale is a civil parish and a parish of the Church of England in the City of Lancaster in the English county of Lancashire. It has a population of 348.[1] The parish includes the hamlets of Abbeystead, Lee, Lower Green Bank, Ortner, Marshaw and Tarnbrook. The parish church, Christ Church is located about a mile to the west of Abbeystead.

The vast majority (around 16,000 acres) of the land in the parish is comprised within the Abbeystead Estate, the property of the Duke of Westminster, which extends into neighbouring parishes to a total extent of approximately 23,000 acres. Of the hamlets, only Lower Green Bank does not form a part of the Abbeystead Estate. The only other significant landowner is the Leigh family.

Blackpool F.C. chairman Karl Oyston married his partner Vicki Wheeler in a ceremony at the parish's Christ Church on 19 February 2011.[2]
