St Helen’s stands in the centre of the village and forms an integral part of the community. Whilst of Norman origin, the body of the church was almost entirely rebuilt in 1880 and the tower is thought to date back to the 14th century. It has several old stained glass windows as well as two modern windows.

There will be a display in the church and light refreshments will be served throughout the day. 

We are also open Friday 13th May, 10am-4pm.

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.

Glentworth • St Michael


Glentworth St Michael (photo provided by the church)
St Michael’s church is a superb late 11th century church with a stained glass window by Charles Kempe in the Saxon tower. It has a fine marble tomb of Sir Christopher Wray, Chief Justice of England during Elizabeth I’s reign, with his wife and children and is an Elizabethan gem. Three of his children played leading roles in the spread of puritan ideas between 1600 and 1620 and were associated with the Mayflower Pilgrims that sailed to America from Boston.

Willoughton • St Andrew

The church was partially rebuilt in 1794. A new West End Tower and Nave were built on to the 13th century Chancel. It was a typical George III church with a gallery at the West end and box pews. These have been swept away with the subsequent Victorian restoration in 1888, leaving behind the church seen today. 

The remains of the Nicholas Sutton Tomb in the Sanctuary and the blocked up medieval perpendicular two-light window in the South wall of the chancel are the only surviving evidence of the earlier church.

The internationally renowned cruciform Anglo-Saxon minster church of St Mary dates to 975AD with a Norman chancel completed around 1150AD. The Victorian restoration was sensitive to the original construction. Important features include Viking graffiti from 10th-11th century, a 12th century wall painting depicting the life and death in 1170AD of Thomas Becket,  Archbishop of Canterbury, and a font from 1300AD.
