The church of St. Botolph, a handsome building, with square tower, nave, aisles, and chancel, was restored in 1850: the interior is lofty; contains an organ, over which are the Ten Commandments, and on each side are paintings of Moses and Aaron: in a chapel in the north aisle is the tomb of Sir Nicholas Bacon, Knt., and Ann, his lady, in a recumbent position; the monument is of marble, and beautifully executed: in the chancel is a monument to Judge Holt, in his robes of office, in a sitting position, with the figures of Justice holding the sword and scales on the one side, and Mercy on the other: at the altar is a painting of the Virgin and Christ, with angels, &c. The register dates from 1600.
