Church of St Helen, Church Kelloe, Kelloe - County Durham (UA)

St Helen's has a west tower and nave of Norman origin. The C13 chancel was substantially rebuilt in 1854 and refitted in 1901. Repairs to alleviate water ingress to the chancel were completed in 2017 with a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant. Funding was awarded in 2017, through the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme, to enable the repair of areas of decaying and deeply eroded external stonework. Those repairs are due to be completed in 2018.
