Wat Phra Singh UK
Wat (meaning temple) Phra Singh UK has recently been established to serve the large number of Theravada Buddhists in the North West being supported by its parent Temple, Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The project is a member of the Network of Buddhist Organisations (NBO) and of the National Council of Voluntary Organisations (NCVO). A loan from Triodos Bank has assisted with the purchase of new premises – the Waterloo Hotel, Runcorn. The property includes a separate flat which will be used to provide accommodation for the monks and also has 8 further bedrooms that will be used by visitors.
