Plans have been submitted plans for St. Leonard’s Church so that it can be not only a centre of faith but also be at the heart of our town serving the community by upgrading its facilities, making it more useful for all to use. The funds for this will be raised by the sale of the parish hall on Church Lane.
You will see from the plan shown that the only external change to the medieval church is to extend to the north side the small Victorian extension by 4.5m to accommodate accessible toilets (marked in solid red). There is no change to the view from the south side and from the north side little will change with such a small extension but there is a hidden element to the work as this involves digging into the church yard to a depth of about 2 metres to allow a level access from the Church to the proposed toilet facilities. This part of the church yard has no marked or recent graves but inevitably digging in such an ancient space will involve archaeological investigation. The full size plans are on display in the church. As well as the visible external change to create proper safe accessible toilet facilities, internally we plan a kitchen, a small café style seating area and a smaller glazed in meeting space in the side chapel that can easily be heated.
St. Leonard’s is the oldest building in Seaford. It is a beautiful ancient space for worship. It is a grade 1 listed building and as explained before funding for our plans will come from the sale of the parish hall to make our wonderful medieval church accessible to all. Refurbishing St. Leonard’s church will enhance the space needed for community use at the heart of Seaford town as well as remaining a centre of faith.
