St Leonard's Church and cross base adjacent to St Mary's Church, Sand Hutton, North Yorkshire YO41 1LB View on map

Believed to have been ruinous by the mid 19th century when the adjacent St Marys was built. 12th century church with 15th century windows has one jamb of the east window remaining and in the eastern end of the south wall is a square headed traceried two light window of the 15th century and the remains of a curious piscine-a-stone basin in which were washed the chalice and other sacred vessels. At the west end of the same wall is a late 12th century door with a round arch of two orders with foliated capitals at the sides. The font still standing here is a plain circular bowl, a built-up stem and a square base. Outside to the South is the base of medieval cross. Beyond the west wall, steps down to the crypt built centrally beneath the west end of the church.
