St. Helen's Church, set at the heart of the market town of Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, is an historic and attractive 15th century building. Why not view our Church Guide below which you can pick up in the church, open every day from 9am until 5pm, whilst exploring its wonderful historic and splendid interior. You may wish to sit quietly to rest and reflect, or join us at one of our weekly services or frequent fellowship and community events.
Church Vaults – The Big Reveal!
The results of our archaeological investigation to separate the fact from the myth around the entrance to the vaults, which we undertook back in July, will be revealed on Tuesday, 28th November at 7.30pm in the church. The results will be presented by Mercian Archaeology, who led this investigation.
We do hope you will come along and see if we found the entrance to the vaults, how many vaults there are, where they are positioned, and how they are accessed. As we ended up surveying pretty much all of the church who knows what else might be revealed?
This is a free event courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund and refreshments will be available at a small charge.
Please come along and bring anyone else who might be interested. You do not need to book.
