St Leonard's Church was built in the 12th century. It has been designated as a Grade II* listed building and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The manor was held by Shaftesbury Abbey's manor of Tisbury. The church was built of flint and limestone, in the 12th century. By the 19th century the fabric of the building was decaying and, in 1859 a major restoration was undertaken. The font and a sculptured relief of the Lamb of God over the south doorway date from the Norman era. The church was closed in 1966 and declared redundant in 1973 and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
