The wall paintings in St Leonard's Church are acknowledged to be one of Clayton & Bell's two masterpieces, the other being at St Michael's & All Angels, Garton on the Wold. 

They are the reason the church is Grade I listed and no surface of the church is left undecorated.

A comprehensive and fully illustrated guide to the Wall paintings has been compiled by the Archivist and may be read on-line or downloaded.
Restoration of the wall paintings

A programme of restoration work is now underway to restore the wall paintings and other decoration by Clayton & Bell back to their original glory. 

Although the main wall paintings are in excellent condition there has been both wanton damange and water damage to various sections over the years.

The final phase is now underway and should be completed by the end of April; when this is done a video presentation on the wall paintings and restoration will be posted on the website.
