St Leonard's Church, in Rodney Stoke, Somerset, is a Grade I listed building. Inside are several monuments to the Rodney family dating back to the 15th to 17th centuries, of historic and artistic importance. In its day, the family was one of the most powerful in the West of England, with connections to royalty and the nobility. The family's descendants include: Admiral George Brydges Rodney, the 1st Baron Rodney; and Congressman Caesar Rodney of Delaware, one of the signatories of the US Decalaration of Independence. These monuments, and two others in the churchyard, are in urgent need of conservation work to preserve them for future generations and as a historic and artistic focus for visitors, and we would be extremely grateful for any financial help, no matter how small, that you can provide. If you can, come and see for yourselves. The church is open every day.
