SU 24 SE GRATELEY GRATELEY

5/14 Church of
St Leonard

I

Parish church. C12, C13, restoration of 1851. Aisleless nave and chancel, west
tower and south porch. The nave is Norman with an original window, some lancets
and a traceried (south) light of the mid C19; the chancel is C13 (slightly-wider
than the nave) with 2 lancets on the north side and triple lancets at the east
end; the tower is C13 with C15 diagonal buttresses; the porch is 1738 restored
mid C19. Plain tile roof, walls of flint (with some stone rubble), coursed,
knapped and squared to the chancel, with stone dressings. The tower has a small
brick parapet and small corner pinnacles. The porch, with a simple Norman
doorway within, has a sundial above the entrance, dated 1784. Within, the notable
feature is the presence of stained glass (with brilliant reds and blues) rescued
from Salisbury cathedral by William Benson Earle in 1787 and given to the church.
The font is a plain Norman tub. The west wall of the nave has 4 painted
prescription boards (with arched tops) and a bequest board. A small wrought-iron
bracket fixed to the wall near the pulpit once held the hourglass (for timing the
sermon). In front of the altar rail is a double row of 60 medieval inlaid tiles.
