View of St Helen’s Church in Wheathamstead, Hertfordshire. The church was built in the 13th century on the site of an earlier religious building- the remains of which have suggested that there was an apse here. It was built of flint rubble or Tottenhoe clunch and was not competed until the 14th century. The tower has an unusual ‘broach’ spire- made from wood and set at a vert steep angle on a square base. It rises to a diminishing octagon and is surmounted by a large cross. St Helen’s was restored in the 19th century, with the work thought to have been carried out by Edward Browning.
