The church is dedicated to St. Helen.  It is a Gothic style building of stone and brick, rebuilt in 1850 and restored in 1913.  It seats about 60 people and is beautifully situated in parkland, much visited by walkers on the Viking Way.  Occasional services are held each year, including a well-attended Harvest Thanksgiving Service.


Biscathorpe is the smallest village/ hamlet within the parish situated off the A.157 Lincoln/Louth road with a population of approximately 12 adults, largely involved in agriculture.  Children from the area attend primary schools in Donington-on-Bain and secondary schools in Louth, Horncastle or Market Rasen.  There are no local amenities in the hamlet itself.  Transport is provided on request by the Lincolnshire County Council Inter-Connect service.
