St Helen's Churchyard, South Wheatley
St Helen's Churchyard, South Wheatley
Although the church is a ruin, the churchyard is still used for burials as the churchyard at North Wheatley is small and completely full.
Church of St Helen, South Wheatley
The parish of South Wheatley was merged with neighbouring North Wheatley in 1883 and the church has been a ruin since then. Now only the tower and chancel arch remain.

The ruin has been seriously tidied up since Richard Croft was there in 2005 LinkExternal link and Jonathan Thacker in 2012 LinkExternal link . The ivy has been completely stripped, the ground improved and a brick wall which filled the tower arch has been replaced by a metal grille so the interior of the tower is now on view.

The remaining features are the 15th century tower in Perpendicular style which still retains an old timber bell frame, and the much degraded 12th century chancel arch in Norman style.

The ruin is Listed Grade I and also has Scheduled Monument status.
