Church of England Diocese of Hereford Leebotwood

St Mary's, Leebotwood - Steeplewood Fold

Originally a hermitage owned by Haughmond Abbey the stone church was built in circa 1200A.D.

A medieval wall painting of the Nativity discovered in 1976 and the Welsh dragon carvings on the Western roof truss are of particular note. Memorials to the Corbett family are in the East end of the church. The churchyard is managed to conserve wildflowers and other wildlife.

The church is part of the Steeplewood Fold group of churches comprises six parishes – Stapleton, Dorrington, Longnor, Leebotwood, Smethcote and Woolstaston. The parishes have an approximate civil population of approximately 2000 and most lie to the west of the A49 trunk road between Shrewsbury and Church Stretton: approximately 5 miles distant from each. 


The parishes of the Steeplewood Fold are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies. The Diocese of Hereford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA). If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
