The tall greenstone Perpendicular tower is topped by battlements and  pinnacles.  It was rebuilt in 1881 after it had collapsed. 

The 15th century porch, like the tower, has impressive gargoyles!

A fine landmark on the southern edge of the Wolds,  St Helenís dates largely from the 14th and 15th centuries, most notably the arcades inside with their interesting carved capitals.

Externally, the church has been much patched and restored. The chancel was rebuilt in limestone in 1867 by G E Street.
