St Leonard & St Mary, Beaumont-cum-Moze

Beaumont and Moze were two separate parishes, with separate churches – St Leonard in Beaumont and St Mary in Moze. In 1678, due to the cost of repairing St Mary’s and the poverty of the population, the decision was made to merge the two parishes, using St Leonard’s church. Parts of St Mary’s was used in repairs on St Leonard’s. This means that from the mid-1550’s until the parishes were merged. The cemetery of St Mary’s was still used for burials after the merger.
