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.

  • Section Two from Thistle Storr Wood near Apley to Fiskerton along the Viking Way (6¼ miles)
  • Section Three follows the River Witham Valley from Fiskerton on a delightful riverside walk to Lincoln's Cathedral Quarter (6¼ miles).

The building has pre-conquest and late Norman features. The Victorian restoration, finished in 1884, was overseen by architects Bodley & Garner. The reredos, painted roof and organ case date from this period. When the medieval rood screen was discovered, it was reinstated with the top structure completed to original design.
