Leigh Delamere Church
The church of St Margaret of Antioch in Leigh Delamere dates to 1846. It was built by James Thomson, who incorporated parts of an earlier 12th century church into the new building.
Thomson created a splendid mock-medieval building with a richly decorated interior and an unusual, columned bell turret. The reredos is perhaps the most impressive feature of the church, which is illuminated by 19th century stained glass in a huge west window. The church is now no longer in regular service and is preserved by the Churches Conservation Trust.
