St LEODEGARIUS, Ashby St Ledgers

The church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Leodegarius in the charming little village of Ashby St Ledger is a gem. There's a 15th century rood screen, box pews, a minstrels gallery and numerous wall paintings.

The church (and village) is also known for its association with the Catesby family, who owned the manor for centuries. Robert Catesby was the brains behind the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The gatehouse where the plotters met is near the church - but is not open to the public.
