The first chapel here in Fen House Lane was erected in 1854 at a cost of £120.

In 1883 a second chapel was built alongside the first; it closed in 1919 and was sold three years later.

Both chapel buildings survive after conversion, the first as a store and the second as a dwelling.

They are located at NGR TF 357 599.

The two chapel buildings survive well into the 21st century, still largely intact and unmodified externally.

Another view of the chapels. The protective 'Heras' fencing around the site suggests that development or demolition is imminent.

The tower of St Helen's is Perpendicular. Its nave arcades are Early English but much of the exterior is the work of the ubiquitous James Fowler of Louth in 1853.
