Chapel History

ST HELEN'S, a chapelry and market-town, in the parish and union of Prescot, hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 11 miles east by northeast of Liverpool; comprising part of the township of Eccleston, and the entire townships of Parr, Sutton, and Windle.

This town, originally a small village, is now a thriving place, situated on an extensive coal-field. The church, originally dedicated to St Helen, on being enlarged in 1816, was dedicated anew to St Mary; another chapel, called St Thomas's church (Eccleston), was erected in about 1839.

There are places of worship for the Society of Friends, Independents, and Wesleyans, and a Roman Catholic chapel.[1]
