Hatfield, St Leonard's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Late Saxon doorway and tub font
The walls are of local sandstone rubble with corner and window dressings of porous tufa quarried near Clifton on Teme. The chancel was rebuilt in the 13th century, and the nave extended westward in the 14th century, when the timber-framed west porch was added. The south wall of the nave is much later, being rebuilt around 1723.
If you set your satnav for the centre of Hatfield, expecting to find the church, you will be disappointed. As we discovered by chance, the church actually stands well to the west of the hamlet, at the junction of the road to Grafton. St Leonards is usually open daylight hours.
