St. Leonard's Church and Cemetery:

Little remains of the original church in Downham as the 15th Century stonework was largely replaced in 1909. The tower is the oldest part of the church, built in the perpendicular style and dating from the 15th Century.

It has a moulded doorway and a battlemented parapet with four gargoyles attached. One of the bells hung in the tower "St. Katherine" was recast at the same time as "St. Paul", from St. Paul's cathedral. So the present St. Katherine has some of the original Paul and some of the original Katherine is in St. Paul's cathedral!

Other points of interest in the church include a medieval font and the East Window constructed by Ralph and Richard Assheton, holders of the lordship of Clitheroe.
