St Leonard's Church, Cotheridge

Recent Photograph of St Leonard's Church (Cotheridge)

St Leonard's nestles behind tall trees, and seeing it for the first time one can only say “ahhh” to find such a delightfully fresh, and new looking exterior, apparently stepping right out of the Arts & Crafts Movement. St Leonard's does however date back to the 14th century, circa 1125.

Unusually, the tower is on the south side of the church. It was added about 300 years later, and as the guide leaflet tells us, just before the first Church of England Prayer book was issued in 1548.
