Church of St Leonard, Rockingham, Rockingham - North Northamptonshire (UA)

Church, of C13 origin. Rebuilt in 1660-70 after it was destroyed in the Civil War and then restored in C19. The church has suffered from structural movement with notable movement occurring in 2014 and continuing through 2018 and 2019. The east wall and south wall of the chapel were invested with ivy and roof coverings to the south slope of the chapel were at the end of their lives. An Historic England Covid 19 Emergency HAR grant was awarded in 2020 to investigate the structural movement, remove ivy from the church and to address roof repairs.
