Two slated conical-roofed Gothic buildings have a rectangular link.

One end houses the village smithy, the other living accommodation.

The building dates around 1800 with later alterations and was refurbished in 2003.

It now produces decorative iron work and has an on-site gallery.

This unusual composite building dates from c.1800 with later alterations.

Two slate roofed conical "pavilions” are linked by a rectangular block. The smithy was at one end.

The porch of St Edith's church has stone benches along each side and once served as the village schoolroom with vicar or curate as schoolmaster.

The graffiti on the porch walls include dates, initials and several sketches similar to this. Perhaps this was an exercise in geometry or had it a deeper significance?
