Historic Churches in Ribble Valley

St. Helen's Church Waddington


Set in the picturesque village of Waddington St. Helen's church has been rebuilt at least four times since 1435.

The present church originates from 1899 - 1901 built in the early perpendicular style. Only the tower remains from the medieval church, it contains a 19th Century window with St. Helen flanked by the Saxon chieftain Wadda and King Henry VI - both thought to be significant characters in the history of the village.

Of interest in the church itself is the medieval font and the Browsholme Chapel originally used as a burial chamber for the local Parker family of Browsholme Hall.
