Monyash, Derbyshire 2/2

The village of Monyash has this delightful little church and fortunately it was still open after Morning Service on the Sunday we visited the village. St Leonard's Church was founded sometime between 1100 and 1192. The building is a patchwork of additions and developments. The major enlargements took place around 1199, 1250, 1348 and 1370, followed by two major restorations in 1886-1888 and 1996-2006. The church also contains a 15th-century font. Today the church is a grade II* listed building of national importance

A warm and welcoming interior, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I was so glad it was open, it is a really cosy village church, I wonder how large their attendance is, it is only a small village.

It looks charming Brian, the outer appearance enhanced by a steeple

Oh, what a long history - a very nice little church indeed! Fine that it is still working for service.

I love the outdoor picture that shows the well kept graves.
Brian Walbey: We'd been there before some years agi and the churchyard was well looked after then, the villagers obviously take pride in their church.
You put together some fine picture selections Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I try my best and better like this than endless daily posts on a single subject.

A lovely collection of pictures Brian. The church and grounds look very well cared for.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne. Not just the church, but the whole village is all neat and tidy.
A well-kept church!
