Saxon Churches has an interesting article about St Helen's Church

Harrison's description (1911):

Restored in 1876. This plain little church has some flint herring-bone work on S. wall of nave, and head of a very small window, which may be pre-conquest. There is a blocked-up doorway and minute window in N. nave. The chancel and low-side window are late E.E.; in S. of chancel is a curious Renaissance tomb. There is a stoup near S. door.
