Chapel St Leonards Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1836 and was enlarged in 1954.

At the 1851 religious census, the average congregation in the chapel, including the Sunday school children, was 80 at the morning service, 180 in the afternoon, and 160 in the evening, although the village population was only 300.

An account of the foundation and growth of the chapel is on the East Lincolnshire Methodists website.
