Prestolee Aqueduct is a stone-built aqueduct in Prestolee in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, Greater Manchester, England.

The four-arch structure was constructed in the 1790s to carry the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal across the River Irwell. It is now preserved as a Grade II listed building.

The aqueduct is one of two remaining major structures on the canal, the other being the Clifton Aqueduct. A third major aqueduct, Damside Aqueduct, was demolished in the 1950s.
