Details

Quiet, pretty village with wide greens and an attractive 18th century bridge over the River Seven. Curious small packhorse bridge on the green thought to have crossed a mill leat in medieval times and also acted as a "flood bridge" over a river flood channel later. Present structure dates from 1794.

Has had a village Maypole for several hundred years. In 1708 the Quakers or "Broad Brims" tried to stop the May Day festivities by rushing the May Queen and musicians.

The Church of All Saints is situated on the hill by Nun's Walk where fields to the east back onto a boundary dyke and a double-dyke of a medieval deer park. It was greatly restored in 1904 but there are relics from the pre-Conquest Church - cross fragments, carvings and round-headed slit windows.
