Places of Worship
There are two places of worship. St Helen’s is a small 13th century church with a solid square tower housing six bells, one of which dates from 1385. The font, which is Norman, and the beautifully carved 16th century bench ends enhance the nave. The second is a Baptist Chapel dating back to 1852. Both establishments hold regular, well attended services.
