St. Mary Magdalene. Leinthall StarkesSt. Mary Magdalene, Leinthall Starkes. The church is a little way from the village. It probably marks the site of the older and now deserted village. It is a simple church with a Norman foundation, with a few later additions. The bellcote is 17th century. It is approached down its own green lane and is a haven of quiet and peace.The 'Green Lane' track from the road can be very slippery, it is probably not suitable for wheel chairs. Please take care. Due to the isolation of this church it is usualy locked.
