Leverington parish church "is dedicated jointly to St. Leonard and St. John...One knows not which to praise most, the Tower in its exquisitely beautiful proportions; or the spire towering upwards in such perfect symmetry, and adorned at various stages with spire-lights of extreme elegance."
The South Porch "is a most curious and elaborate construction. It has a stone roof, a feature very rare in England, there being only about half-a-dozen other specimens. This stone roof is finished on the outside with a rich embattled crest, with pierced tre-foils and is supported on the inside with upright arched ribs. Here a wooden construction is copied in stone."
