The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Salop, and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £7.15. 8., endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Rev. D. Winslow. The church, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, is a large structure, once famous for a profusion of stained glass, of which the windows still display some beautiful fragments, representing crowns, lions, fleurs de lis, the arms of Mortimer, &c. Leintwardine is situated near the confluence of the Teme and the Clun, and from the quantity of fine fish, particularly graylings, with which these rivers abound, is much resorted to as a fishing-place. There are quarries of limestone in the parish: a fair is held on the 4th of April. The Rt. Hon. Robert Harley, afterwards Earl of Oxford and Mortimer, founded, in the reign of Anne, a free school, and endowed it with land now producing an annual income of about £45. The ancient forest of Mocktree, which has been long disafforested, is in this parish." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
