Brief History

The village of Wortley stands on the A629 road 9 miles from Sheffield and 6 miles from Barnsley in South Yorkshire. The postcode is S35 7DB.

St Leonard’s Church is a Grade II Listed Building of medieval origin. The present building is post medieval with the tower being the oldest part built in 1753-54. It stands at the centre of Wortley village. There is no car park for the church but limited on-street parking is available opposite the church.

The tower houses a ring of 8 bells hung for full circle ringing by experienced tower bell ringers. There is an active team of ringers at St Leonard’s who are members of the Yorkshire Association of Change Ringers, Sheffield branch.

The bells are rung regularly at the following times

10.30am to 11am for Sunday morning service on the first, third and fourth Sundays of the month.
7.30pm to 9pm for practice on Thursday evenings throughout the year.

Occasional Ringing

We welcome teams of visiting ringers to ring our bells. All requests to ring are subject to approval by St Leonard’s Parochial Church Council (PCC).

Quarter Peals can be rung by visiting teams.

We allow 2 Peals per year, 6 months apart.

Ringing for wedding is by arrangement with the Rector, Rev Chris Herbert when booking your wedding.
