Stagsden receives mention in the Domesday Book, suggesting the likely existence of a church here in the 11th century, St Leonard’s church is, however, first recorded in the 13th century, the vicar in 1229 being Reginald de Stacheden (Stagsden). The nave and the chancel of the present church date back to a similar period. Additions and renovations have since taken place, including the late 14th/early 15th century addition of the north chapel. This window was installed in 2000.
