St Leonard's Chapel of Farleigh Castle was built in the mid-14th century, originally as the parish church. It was then rebuilt in 1380-90 by Sir Thomas Hungerford at the same time as the building of the castle. The porch dates from the early 16th century. Inside the chapel are the huge tombs of the Hungerford family.
