Eccleston is one of seven civil parishes in St Helens, and one of the largest covering the neighbourhoods of Eccleston Park, Gillars Green, Trapwood Close, and the area around Springfield (now a Carmelite monastery) south of the A580 road. Eccles which is found in several place names in the North West of England is derived from the Welsh Eglwys and the use of this word implies a Celtic religious foundation.However, there does not seem to have been a church in the township of Eccleston until Portico Our Lady's Roman Catholic chapel in the late 18th century.
It is suggested that the name is connected with the adjoining town of Prescot which has had a church for over a thousand years.There are several open public spaces including many woods and small nature reserve at Millfields.There are a number of public footpaths through local countryside such as Green Lane and Sadlers Lane.The present Eccleston Hall dates from the 1820s but there have been halls on the site from the late mediaeval period.The Eccleston family, who were Lords of the Manor of Eccleston, were recusants and there was a Catholic chapel in the old hall which was built in the Tudor era.Whether you’re a business looking to offer clients or staff a fantastic evening, a charity hosting a fundraiser or you just want to see your guilty pleasure in all of its cinematic glory, the exclusivity of your own private auditorium is sure to make it a screening to remember.
