St Leonard's Church, Rodney Stoke

Welcome to our page!  We hope you can find all you need, but if there is anything else please get in touch.

St Leonard's is a Grade One, small, medieval church situated at the western end of the village. The church was first built in the 12th century and has been added to over the centuries.

It has many visitors throughout the year, some of whom come from overseas. The church has some remarkable features inside. Most notably are the four monuments to the Rodney family in the chapel built in the 15th century. The pews in the nave, which seat about 80 people, have beautiful bench ends originally carved by the villagers. One of the stained glass windows, which has been recently restored, commemorates the safe return of the men and women who took part in the First World War and is known as the Thanksgiving Window.
