About St Leonard's Church

The Parish church of St. Leonard was built in 1902-3 by Lady Ashburton in memory of her daughter, the Marchioness of Northampton. With a somewhat gothic appearance, the church is spacious and the acoustics are excellent. The eight bells are reputed to be amonst England's finest.

Sherfield English was originally named Sirefelle, becoming Shirefelde in the 13th century. 'English' was added to the title after the d'Engleys family.
