The Church is open every day from mid-morning until late afternoon. It's a lovely place to visit for a rest, meditation, prayer and to read about its history and to see the monuments.

Getting here

St Leonard's is a 12th  century Grade I listed church which is open to the public every day. It contains historic monuments to the Rodney family after whom the village is named. These, together with the 17th-century rood screen and font cover and an even older font, are the primary reasons for its listing. These monuments have recently been the subject of a major conservation project. Rodney Stoke is one of the few Thankful Villages in the country, from which all those who went away to fight in World War I returned home safely. The church includes a stained glass window commemorating this fact. Services are held in the church every Sunday and on special occasions, and concerts and talks take place each year. Service and contact details can be found online at, while historic information about the church, its monuments and the village are at
