St Helena's church, South Scarle
Grade I listed.
12th Century onwards, Tower arch is 13th C. (5 bells, one inscribed "my roaringe sounde doth warning geve that men cannot heare always lyve") South aisle 14th C. Tower is 14th C. South porch 15th C. Chancel is Early English.
Remains of 12th century walls can be seen around the bases of the arcades on the south side of the nave and there is also a “sitting bench” round the base of one of the pillars. The Norman arcades are elaborate work with circular piers, west and central with leaf capitals, arches have two orders of coffered diaper work on face and soffit plus zigzag, roll mould and a head in the central spandrel. They were restored, cleaned and redressed in the extensive Victorian restoration of 1871 which explains the cleanliness of the cut now seen. There is also a 13th century double piscina.
