St Helen, Mareham-le-Fen
The earliest parts of the church date from about 1270 and they are the lower part of the tower and the tower arch. The church was largely restored in the 1870s, when the 14th-century chancel was almost entirely rebuilt. Further restoration work was done in the late 1960ís and early 1970ís. When the Mediaeval church of St Margaret, Old Woodhall was demolished, much of the material was brought over to build the new north vestry, kitchenette and vestibule. The font dates from the 14th-century, but the cover is modern. The registers were begun in 1558. The James Roberts gravestone, near the north door, was brought into the church to avoid further erosion. It commemorates the first voyage around the world under Captain James Cook. The famous botanist Joseph Banks from nearby Revesby was also aboard.
