Church of St Leonard, Vicarage Lane, Priors Marston - Stratford-on-Avon

Late C13 origins although the aisle was enlarged in C14. The tower was remodelled or rebuilt in the 1720s and the chancel in 1863. The walls are built in ironstone, with limestone dressing, coursed rubble and tiled roofs. The stonework on the tower parapet is in very poor condition because of expanding metal cramps dislodging the stonework and this is now loose. The tracery to the tower windows also needs replacing as it has fallen in parts. The church is exploring funding to carry out repairs.
