St Helens, South Wheatley, Nottinghamshire

    Newer Older

    The ruins of St Helens in the village of South Wheatley in Nottinghamshire. This Grade I listed building has finally been uncovered after years beneath a thick layer of ivy - some say the ivy was the only thing holding the place together. The ivy has been cut at the base allowing the reamains of this church - part of it, the Chancel Arch, date back to the 12th century - to be seen once more. There are plenty of photos of this place on the internet when it was covered in ivy, all that there is/was to see were two tall clumps of greenery. Now the brick work is on show once more.

      This is a little cracker of a ruin. Beautifully composed in the trees.
