Church of St Leonard, Grendon Underwood - Aylesbury Vale

Parish church. C12-C13 nave with early C13 south door and C15 alterations, late C13-early /C14 chancel, C15 tower, restored 1866 and 1902. Coursed rubble stone, the nave partly with slobbered rendering. The church has been a victim of heritage crime and the nave roof structural timbers have active death-watch beetle. An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship in the summer of 2017 has been accepted and a specification is being prepared for repairs. Confirmation of funding for the repairs is awaited which would allow the work to be completed by autumn 2019.
