About Us...

The church has a long history of ministering to a small village community. Before Norman times the mud and wattle building was dedicated to St Leonard , a Saxon saint, but the name was changed at the restoration of the building in 1887 to its present dedication.

In about 1100 the centre part of the nave was built, which makes it one of the earliest churches in the county of Herefordshire . The de Walford Family held the Knight' fee of Walford, and the north aisle formed their private chapel, later becoming the Kyrle Chapel. During Cromwell's time, Lieutenant- Colonel Kyrle occupied Walford Court , wavering between one side and the other during the fighting. Over the chancel arch hangs his helmet, which is possibly a funeral helm because of its small size and thin metal.
