St Leonard's Church

Butleigh

Somerset

December 2008

 

 

There has been a church on this site since the Saxon times but the current shape and appearance dates from the mid 19th Century.  The church was rebuilt in the 14th Century as a long, narrow structure with a central tower.  1608 sees the addition of the North Transept.  The South Transept was added in 1851.  Other major changes were made in the mid 1800s and these give it the look that is has today.

A special “Thank You” goes to Robert Senior, for all his hard work creating his wonderful web site, which has been extremely helpful with the transcribing of damaged or feint headstone inscriptions.  It is well worth checking out his site as it has far more information on the people of Butleigh than I am able to give here.
