The exterior architecture of the church

Helmsley Parish Church tower

Helmsley Parish Church, a great medieval building dating from around 1129. For a small sum of money an excellent guide book can be purchased. Helmsley Parish Church tower. The tower was rebuilt in about 1865 along with much of the church but within the church much early stonework survives.

The original beautiful perpendicular windows were replaced in the 1868 'renovation' with mock early lancet style windows, but to my untutored eye they look pretty good in style.

       The series of carved faces on the north wall of All Saint's Helmsley Parish Church. A relatively modern or medieval joke for the touring visitor?


The interior of All Saints Church.

The chancel is entered beneath a beautiful Norman arch from the 12th century. It is believed to be architecturally unique with its double cone moulding and triple bands between each cone.
