These three photographs are among the oldest surviving photographs of the interior of St Helen’s Church Carlin How.  They are difficult to date, but our best guess is sometime in the early 1950’s

This Photograph of the interior is also dated to the 1950’s.  We know this photograph was taken after 1951 as the six high altar candlesticks were purchased in 1951 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of St Helen’s Church, which was consecrated on the 30th October 1901.
