Abbey Church, Elstow

Abbey Church of St. Helena, Elstow

Is the truncated remnant of a larger monastic church founded in 1078. Overlooking Elstow green and Moot Hall the church has two stain glass windows connected with Bunyan, one depicts scenes from the Pilgrims Progress and the other the Holy War.

It contains the communion table used when Bunyan attended the church and the font where he was christened in 1628.

John Bunyan's mother, father and sister are buried in the graveyard.
