The church of St. Margaret, a stone building, was thoroughly repaired about 1845: it has a nave, chancel, south porch, and tower with 1 bell. The living is a rectory, value £240, with residence, and about 20 acres of glebe, in the gift of the Rev. William Darby and Rev. Martin Baily Darby, and held by the Rev.

There is a bequest, derivable from certain lands in the parish, for the repairs of the church, to the amount of £5 annually, made by some person whose name is unknown. Here is a national school for boys and girls.
