Sutton Oak Welsh Chapel

Situated on Lancots Lane, Sutton Oak , St Helens, the Chapel is a grade 2 listed building, in need of much restoration. It is also the last of the Welsh Chapels, the 3rd oldest church in St Helens, and by all accounts the only building in the North West which is made up of copper slag-industrial waste from the copper smelting works, which used to be opposite the Welsh Chapel.

The Sutton Oak Welsh Chapel Society are currently in the middle of a large scale renovation programme to restore the building to its former glory.

Regular services are held - in English - and the Chapel is open to visitors every Friday.
