 All Saints Church, Legbourne

Saint Helen's, Little Cawthorpe

Legbourne All Saints has an unusual green (copper) and white (chalk) appearance. It contains many features of historic and artistic interest including the county's best suite of windows by Preedy, some mediaeval glass and interesting needlework.

The walk, which is approximately one mile, between the two churches, follows a delightful route, passing amongst other things, Legbourne's dual-powered mill.

Little Cawthorpe St Helen's is a Victorian polychromatic design which was described at its unveiling as being ' a truly excellent design ......... for cheaply rebuilding a small rural church ..... the arrangements thoroughly correct'.

Jean will give a talk and tour of St Helen’s, finishing at around 12.10 to walk back to Legbourne.

Please note: There is disabled access to the church at Legbourne but at Little Cawthorpe there is a flight of shallow steps. There is a toilet at Legbourne Church which will be open all morning.

Lunch will not be provided but you can bring a picnic or alternatively book your lunch at The Royal Oak at Little Cawthorpe 01507 600750 or at The Waggon and Horses at South Reston 01507 450364
