This large Elizabethan house, occupied at various times by Monsons and Peacocks, fell into ruin and was finally abandoned in the 1940s.

The hall was replaced by a new hall on an adjacent site in 1875.

The exterior of the large church of St John the Baptist is largely 16th century or later. Inside, however, are impressive Norman arcades of the late 12th century.

The chancel arch is 13th century, and there is early 14th century tracery in the chancel windows.

Much restoration was carried out in the early 20th century.
