Lee Brockhurst is a small village part of the civil parish of Moreton Corbet and Lee Brockhurst, about 12 miles SW of Market Drayton. The church lies to the N of the parish, on the N bank of the River Roden, and consists of a structure built in coursed sandstone rubble. It is a single-aisled 12thc church with a chancel, a S porch and a vestry added in the 19thc; the building was restored in 1884. On the N and S walls of the nave two plain small 12thc windows survive. Romanesque sculpture is found on the the S doorway and one fragment lying loose in the porch.


The Domesday Survey records that in 1066 'Lege' was held by Alfheah, Wulfgeat, and Wihtric of Lee; in 1086 the lordship passed to Norman the Hunter. The manor valued £3.
