St Helen

The church that serves this beautiful little village in Lincolnshire has a fascinating tower showing many stages of the building’s history and is situated in a quiet lane, perched on a precarious slope.

About this church

The origins of the standing church go way back to Saxon and early Norman times with the base still visible. There has been considerable rebuilding work in chalkstone on top of the original ironstone.

The interior also a mixture of period pieces with an impressive lectern and an organ case from Brocklesby Park. Another connection there are the monuments to Sir William Pelham and his family.
