Saint Helena's Church, Lundy
Saint Helena's Church, Lundy
The church was preceded by earlier buildings with a similar dedication. A small chapel on the island, probably founded in the 12th or 13th century, was dedicated to Saint Elena; it fell into disrepair by the 17th century. A temporary corrugated iron structure was dedicated to Saint Helen in 1885.
The present square-towered stone church was built in the mid-1890s by the Reverend Hudson Grosset Heaven, financed by an 1895 bequest from Sarah Langworthy, born Sarah Heaven, of the Heaven family which owned Lundy from 1834 to 1918. The church was designed by eminent Victorian architect John Norton, completed in 1896 and consecrated on 17 June 1897 by Edward Bickersteth, the Bishop of Exeter.
