Churches (147) : St Helen, Burton Joyce

The parish church of St Helen in the Nottinghamshire village of Burton Joyce dates from the 13th century though this church replaced an earlier Saxon one of which little is no known. The North aisle of St Helen's may have reused stone from the original church.

The church was extended Southwards in the 14th century and the chancel was rebuilt. The South aisle was an addition in 1725, the arcades were rebuilt in 1879. The following year a pipe organ was installed.
