In his 1828 'History of Retford' John S Piercy writes: "the situation of this church is peculiarly pleasing and interesting; seated on an eminence, and surrounded by trees rendered venerable from their great age ... The Church is small and ancient; it is dedicated to St. Helen, and consists of a nave and chancel; in its exterior it had nothing whereof to boast, its interior is simple, clean and in good repair. The tower is squat and contains two bells."
