Willoughby with Sloothby, St Helena

Willoughby with Sloothby, St Helena*

St Helena’s dates back to the 14th century with additions and alterations of the 15th and later, the 19th  (these by James Fowler of Louth).  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. Scenes of his life are depicted 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’.
