James Fowler rebuilt St Mary’s in 1879 and added the bell-turret with its spire.

He retained the 13th century arcades and the Norman arch at the west end.

The building on the left (TF 166967) contains an overshot water wheel erected in c1818 to provide power for a threshing machine and other barn machinery in the farm building opposite.

Gearing from the wheel drove a shaft passing under the road.

The water was fed from an overhead leet linked to a reservoir on the valley side but this no longer remains.
