St Mary's Church, Leake

PLEASE LEAVE A DONATION TO HELP WITH THE UPKEEP OF THIS LOVELY OLD MEDIEVAL CHURCH

St Mary's Church, Leake is set a few hundred yards east of the busy A19 in North Yorkshire, all on its own except for the adjacent buildings of Leake Hall (a farm?). Fortunately the sound of the traffic is faint enough not to intrude on this lovely old church set in its original graveyard.
