St Helen's Church

Sefton Mill Lane, Liverpool, Merseyside, L29 7WG
St Helen's Church


The church is the only Grade I listed building in the Sefton borough and dates back to 1170 when the chapel was built. The present tower was added in 1320 and it was completed in its present form in the early 1500s. The church still remains an active place of worship today. Originally it was a private chapel for the Molyneux family - figures and brass minuments of family members still remain at the church. The Molyneux family became known as the Earls of Sefton in 1770, the second Earl of the family was the founder of the Grand National Steeplechase. Their family crest can also be seen here. In 1974 the crest was adopted as the coat of arms of the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton when the borough adopted the name of the village of Sefton as its title.
