Charity details

Leaden Roding LCC

St Michael & All Angel Church, Leaden Roding

St Michael and All Angels church at Leaden Roding is situated in the west of the village and was the first in the area to have a lead roof, from which the village is said to have taken its name. It is a Norman style building with parts dating from the 11th century, with the porch and vestry added in the 19th century. The squat shingled bell tower houses three bells, one of which is reputed to be the oldest in Essex, dated at 1523. The bells are chimed regularly but extensive renovation is required before they can be rung fully. A Holditch Organ was installed in the church in 2000, and is played regularly.
