About this church
Much of it was rebuilt in 1859 by Victorian architect James Fowler, but it still retains its Norman tower arch and Early English font. Together with the churchyard it is probably seen at its best during the annual Snowdrop Festival held in February.
On the A158 approach to Edlington and St Helen’s Church, you may be mistaken by what you see at the junction. Time it right in an evening and the light will be just right to catch a glimpse of this scoundrel's face. Yes, you will have just seen the Edlington Pirate. For 18 years he has presided over the A158, to the amusement of holidaymakers on their way to the coast. Having his own Facebook page, this pirate is becoming a true celebrity for Edlington!
