Getting here

Much loved Norman village church with a service every week (currently excluding the 1st Sunday of each month. Mid-morning services on the 3rd & 4th Sundays cater for families, as this and youth work are high priorities. The benefice now has a Families & Youth Work Curate living in Bledington Vicarage.
There is also a very regular older congregation which enjoys the Prayer Book services at 8 am and 6 pm.
The village has a Prayer Group. Independently there is a Mothers & Toddlers Group, and the well-established Bledington Care Committee.
There are 44 on the Electoral Roll.

History & architecture: St Leonard's dates from 1170: 12th century work includes the nave, pillars, tub font & sanctus bellcote: 13th century south aisle; 14th century windows; 15th century tower, stained glass & tiny Chantry chapel: open bell-chamber & ring of six bells.
The pulpit & vestry screen were made around 1904 by the then churchwarden.
The church is one of around 170 in England dedicated to St Leonard, a 6th century French bishop (friend of Clovis) & later abbot (near Limoges) - prayers to whom were believed to have brought about the safe release of the 12th century Norman crusader Bohemunde, sometime Prince of Antioch.
