St. Leonard


Parish church. C14 origin, mainly rebuilt c.1854 by C. Hakewill, retaining some
features of the earlier building. Original part of plastered rubble, remainder
of exposed uncoursed rubble, with limestone dressings, roofed with handmade red
clay tiles. Chancel partly C14, Nave, N aisle, N vestry, S porch and W bellcote

original doorway with chamfered jambs and 2-centred arch. In the Chancel is a
piscina with moulded jambs, cinquefoiled head and sexfoiled drain, probably C15.
Over the chancel-arch is a stone carved with the monogram IRS. The communion
rail is early C18, with moulded rail and twisted balusters. Floor-slabs
reported by RCHM (1) to Mrs. R.E. Rathbone, 1689, and (2) to Rev. James
Rathbone, early C18, concealed by fitted carpet. In the S porch are 2 moulded
wallplates, re-used in the C19 structure, and a C15 indent of a figure and
inscription. There are 2 bells, the second inscribed 'John Darbie made me 1684'
(date indistinct from a distance).
