St Leonard’s is dedicated to a sixth century French nobleman who is the patron saint of prisoners, and one of the stained glass windows in the south wall shows St Leonard holding a prisoner’s chains. The 13th century building, which boasts an ‘angel roof’, has been added to and altered over the centuries, the most recent addition being a small kitchen and toilet on the north side of the church in 2007.

The tower houses six bells which are rung regularly, and the organ is currently used to record the music for our Zoom services each week. There is more information about the bells and organ on the relevant pages under the Activities tab.
Social activities are suspended at the moment due to the pandemic, and will be restarted as soon as it is safe to do so.
