Baptism At St Leonard's

A Memory of Bridgnorth

I was baptised in this font in July 1948. My late grandmother's family were parishioners at St Leonard's and will have been baptised there too. The family is connected to carpet weaving in the town, one of whom was the first Axminster weaver. That family name was/is Head and there are still members of the family active in this church, although it is now under the care of the Redundant Churches Commission. Lots of information on this church available in Bridgnorth Library and the Church itself.
