Chapelry History

Euxton is a village and chapelry in Leyland Parish union of Chorley, N. division of Lancashire,2 miles (W. N. W.) from Chorley. It was created in 1711.[1]

Unusually the parish church has no dedication but was founded in the 14th century although there is evidence of an even earlier structure underneath. The chief architectural features are the windows in the north and south walls. The piscina and sedile belong to the 14th century and four other windows also date from the 14th century.
