St Leonard's Church
St Leonard's Church
The church dates from the 12th century, with considerable rebuilding during the 19th. A notable surviving feature is the Norman apse (semi-circular end) with external pilasters - a style of decoration rarely seen outside of France.
The parish website has photos of the church interior LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . For architectural details, see English Heritage LinkExternal link .
There is a sign for St Leonard's Church on the A69, for years I thought it referred to this building NY4656 : The Old Chapel, Warwick-on-Eden . Only recently found out that the actual St. Leonard's is further along the track, hiding behind some trees.
