Facilities and features


The nearest defibrillator is mounted on the outside of the Village Hall near the Ford Lane churchyard entrance.

Ramps for the step down from the door can be found on the left of the entrance under the pew, or in the porch under one of the bench seats. If not there they may have been lent out, contact the Churchwarden or the Village Hall.

Our Building

We have some medieval and some newer stained glass,so it is worth a look. some explanatory information can be found in picture frames close by and in leaflets near the vestry door. Britsh History on line includes: The only medieval glass is in the north chancel window, which is a restoration of a window believed to represent St. Leonard.

In addition to the services listed in these pages, the church is opened daily by a group of volunteers. Generally it will be opened by 09:30 and closed around half an hour after sunset, or by 20:00 (8pm) in summer.


Music and Worship


Infrequently we will have a concert or recital which will be listed in the Services and Events and Calendar sections of this website. Sometimes a village choir will form for a special event, we are lucky to have some talented musicians and singers in the village. In recent years we have enjoyed them at the annual Carol Concert held shortly before Christmas.

The organ is kept in good working order and is used for services and special occasions. Unfortunately we don't have a regular organist for some services, please let us know if you can help! (Use the Get in touch tab)
