Welcome to the website for the five churches in the North Buckingham Parish. The Parish covers the five villages of Akeley, Lillingstone Dayrell, Leckhampstead, Lillingstone Lovell and Maids Moreton, together with the northern part of Buckingham town.
Generations have gathered in our Churches to build up their faith and their communities. Today the Churches are still standing strong in the midst of their communities to serve God and one another.
St. Mary's, Leckhampstead:
Just before Christmas we were visited by a storm of Biblical proportions. Our little river Leck which normally flows at about 4 metres wide suddenly expanded to 80-100 metres wide in various places. Water flowed off the fields, down the church path and the road became a river. The flood boards were quickly dropped into place by the Spraggs. Sadly the church along with 6 other houses in the village were well and truly flooded. The next morning whilst the river had fallen back to its normal size the church floor was very wet. The floor had a covering of silt and was as slippery as an ice rink. On Saturday Jan 2nd we mustered a group of 23 people who worked hard to move everything that could be lifted to the chancel which escaped the flooding. Sadly the church will be closed for a few weeks until we get it cleaned up.
