Chapelry History

Euxton is a village and chapelry in Leyland Parish. The village is pronounced /ˈɛkstən/ "Exton") and is situated just to the south of Leyland, and to the west of Chorley.

Euxton is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Lancashire, created in 1711 from and lying within the boundaries of Leyland ancient parish.

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.

Today, Euxton parish church is a grade 2 listed structure able to seat 191 people for services.

The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.
