A picture of Old Leake

The Anglican parish church at Old Leake, Lincolnshire, is dedicated to St. Mary. This magnificent church, the tower of which was being rebuilt in 1589 but wasn't finished until 1647, is thought to be of Norman origin as Old Leake, referred to as 'Leak' in the Domesday Survey; had no mention of a church in 1086. However, it must have been a rather prosperous settlement as the Domesday Survey does list forty-one salt-houses, 32 freemen, 40 villagers, and 16 smallholders in Leake.
