St Leonard's, Flamstead - History and heritage

St Leonard's, Flamstead is a Grade I Listed church. The building is considered exceptional because it has survived without substantial alteration since about 1450 and contains the most important mediaeval wall paintings in Hertfordshire outside St Alban's Abbey.

Thanks to a very generous grant from the National Heritage Lottery Fund, St Leonard's medieval roof is now in good repair. More work to the fabric of the building has to be completed. However the rare wall paintings are drying out and more detail is becoming clear. 

St Leonard's is open daily to visit or for prayer. It is well worth dropping in. 

A programme of heritage activities is now being rolled out: there will be something fascinating for all the community.
