|Willoughby with Sloothby, St Helena*|
St Helena’s dates back to the 13th century. The octagonal font is where John Smith was baptised in 1580; he later became famous as Captain John Smith, leader of the Jamestown Colony in Virginia. See scenes of his life in the window adjacent to the font. Windows in the chancel depict scenes from the Jamestown Colony and include Pocahontas, wife of John Rolfe. In the bell tower there is what Pevsner describes as a ‘wonderfully primeval ladder’. St Helena's is home to the Alford Group's Forest Church which meets on the 3rs Sunday of the month at 3pm.
