Former Chapel of St Mary in the grounds of Ellel Grange, Ellel - Lancaster

Former chapel built on the Ellel Grange estate in 1873 and designed by W and G Audsley. A striking building in the High Victorian style with ceiling paintings and good quality internal fittings, some of which have been stolen. The building has been vacant for at least 17 years. In 2006-7, Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted for repair and extension. Work has not commenced and permissions have now expired. The LPA is currently in discussions with the owners to achieve a scheme of repair and reuse.
