Real property, £4, 449. Pop., 251. Houses, 50. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged formerly to the Dentons, and belongs now to James Morrison, Esq.; and the manor house was garrisoned for Charles I., suffered assault and spoliation by the parliamentarians, and has now been taken down.

The church is later English; consists of nave, aisles, and chancel, with N porch and W embattled tower; was recently repaired; and contains monuments of the Dentons. Its features form a good specimen of later English, and are said to have furnished Scott, the architect, with his first knowledge of pointed architecture.
