The John Hunt Memorial Chapel was built by the Wesleyan Methodists in 1909, providing space for a congregation of 120. It cost £850 to build.

The building, now converted for residential occupation, occupies a prominent position in the centre of the village. Its bright red brick with cream brick and painted stone details makes a striking front facade.

Rebuilt in 1722, the squat tower nevertheless has traces of Norman and 13th century work.

The rest of the church was rebuilt by C G Hare in 1912.

Apart from the tower, St Michael’s dates from 1912.

Built of stone with a slate roof, the church has buttresses, square–headed and pointed windows, and a pyramidal top to the tower.
