About Us

The Church of St Leonard is an Anglican parish church in ChelwoodSomerset, England. It was built in the 14th century and has been designated as a Grade II listed building.

The church was largely rebuilt during restoration around 1860.

The font is Norman with tiny volutes at the edges and a top frieze of something like lambrequin. These have been described as the remains of locking staples used to prevent witches stealing the holy water. The stained glass has various 16th-century Flemish bits in the south aisle window.

The two stage west tower contains a bell dating from 1773 and made by Abraham Bilbie.

Holy Communion is once a month on the 4th Sunday  at 9.30am and on rotation around our Benefice on the fifth Sunday.
