Designed by R J Withers in 1860, St Helenís was considered a Ďmodel church for parishes of modest meansí.

Built of red brick with black brick decoration  the building has lancet and traceried windows, an overhanging slate roof and a western bellcote and spire.

It is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

Red bricks laid in Flemish bond are used in the construction of St Helen's.

Decoration is added in the bands of black bricks, the ridge tiles (some remain), the panel of hung tiles below the bellcote, and the cast iron finials.
