Long Description:
The windows are either end of the church
The Anglican church,of St Leonard's, is relatively modern, having been built in 1864 by the Duke of Grafton, who added a clock over the porch in 1889.
However, a church dedicated to St Leonard existed in former times on the site of what is now I High Street, with the churchyard on the land adjoining the High Street/Grafton Road bend.
Between times and for those who eschewed High Church, a United Reformed chapel was built in 1826 overlooking Chestnut Green; regular services are still held. Within St Leonard's there is a lectern dedicated to eight Canadian airmen whose aircraft crashed on the outskirts of the village (between the High Street and the new bypass) in 1944.
