Lea - St Helens



St Helen’s dates from 12th century, with the North aisle added in 1380. The tower was rebuilt in 1500 and contained various numbers of bells from about 1553. There is presently a peal of 6, which are rung regularly. The quarter chiming clock was a gift to the parish of Lea in 1814.   between the Choir and the North aisle is a medieval tomb to Sir Roger Trehampton, one of the Knights Templar. 

Flower festival with a wedding theme, display of dresses. New memorial window dedicated to Marshall family of Lea.



The 20th Century Rood Screen that crosses the south chancel is made of oak from the Lea Estate and was built by local craftsmen as a memorial to the men of the parish who lost their lives during the First World War – a plaque to the side lists the names of those men.

The small, 2 manual, organ was built in 1849 by Hunter of London and was originally installed at the west end of the church in the 13th Century tower arch. It was moved to its current position, in the south chancel, in 1875 and was first played by the organist of York Minster – Dr. W.H. Monk.

Kirkby cum Osgodby • St Andrew




Photograph by Richard Croft, source.

St Andrew’s church serves both Kirkby and the adjoining village of Osgodby which has never had an Anglican church of its own. It was built by 1160 and the tower and chancel are both 13th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 19th and 20th century. An interesting feature is the East window which is crooked on one side. No-one knows why.
