It is a medieval church dedicated to 'St Helen' dating from the 13th century. It was heavily restored by the Rector, Canon Frederick Heathcote Sutton and the architect George Frederick Bodley between 1874 and 1876.
The wrought ironwork, gates, railings, candlesticks and candelabra were made by the village blacksmith, F. Coldron.
It is said to have the most elegant spire in Lincolnshire. The spire although reduced in height in 1897 is high. Parts of the church date back to about 1290 though most dates back to about the late 14th century.
There is a late 15th century German painting of the Ascension and a piece of Anglo Saxon inter-lace stonework in the vestry. Under the tower there are the remains of a 14th century trinity which has the top half of God The Father missing. There are also some interesting Green Man bosses to be found in the roof.
