Chapelry History

Ellel St John the Evangelist Chapel Lane was created a chapel of ease in 1727 from, and lying within  Cockerham, Lancashire ancient parish. The parish includes the villages of Bay Horse, Galgate and Hampson Green, and part of Dolphinholme, North and South Ellel.

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.

Ellel Grange had a private chapel St Mary's Chapel, built by Alderman Prestman and consecrated in 1873. It was not used a district chapel and closed.

"ELLEL, a township, a chapelry, and a sub-district, in Lancaster district, Lancashire. The township is in Cockerham parish; 4 miles south by east of Lancaster; and is cut into two divisions, north and south.  The chapelry is less extensive than the township."[1] 

There were three dissenting chapels built here.
