Walter de Helyon
Walter de Helyon
Very rare medieval wooden effigy carved from a single block of oak of a 6ft 4in man in 14th cenntury civilian costume. It is thought to be Walter de Helyon, a franklin who owned land at Much Marcle and believed to have lived at Hellens in 1357. The monument was loaned to the Museum of London's 'Chaucer's London' Exhibition in 1972 when a complete restoration using 14th century colours was done.
