‘Odd’ was our reaction on first seeing St Helen’s, Brigsley. It would be interesting to count the number of different building materials used over the centuries.
The lower part of the tower is eleventh-century, the upper in the Perpendicular style as is the clerestory.
The chancel is from the Decorated period. The north and south arcades have gone.
There are some interesting interior fittings though how one can gain access is not clear.
