St Leonard

Newark Archdeaconry

Newark and Southwell Deanery


The church on Lincoln Road was built to replace the former church of St Leonard’s, Northgate.

The new church, designed by the architect Gordon Smith, was dedicated by the Bishop of Southwell on 5 November 1978. Built in light coloured brick the church contains a nave, north and south aisles, chancel, vestry, porch and an interesting south bellcote construction with a single bell and cross. There is a long, angled row of south facing clerestory windows.

The War Memorial Plaque originally located in the vestry was relocated to the church entrance porch during 2007.
