The parish is a meet for Rothschild's hounds. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £350.* Patron, the Lord Chancellor. The church is chiefly early English; is in good condition; and consists of nave, S aisle, and chancel, with porch and tower. There are a Primitive Methodist chapel and a national school.
