St Leonard

Following severe floods in 1572, St Leonard's had to be rebuilt, becoming the church that stands today.

About this church

A quiet peaceful church welcomes visitors to the coastal village of Chapel St Leonards. In 1901 the red tiled tower was built; quite a unique feature in Lincolnshire. There is one stained glass window but an equally eye-catching picture can be seen from the beautiful clear glass window over the altar which gives spectacular views of the changing seasons outside.
