Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich St. Matthew Leavenheath

Leavenheath, St Matthew

Dedicated to St Matthew, this warm friendly well cared for small Victorian church lying in a tree lined hollow, signed off the A134 at the northern end of the village.

It contains an unusual set of white grave crosses dating from the First World War and associated photographs.

Originally a Victorian Chapel of Ease for St Mary’s, Stoke by Nayland, St. Matthew’s, Leavenheath is now a Parish in its own right.

Parking esp. for disabled down church drive, otherwise on grass verge alongside main road.
