The Holy Trinity Church dates back to Norman times with the earliest parts being the the 3 bayed south and north arcades. The tower and the chancel are Perp. It has an interesting custom known as 'roping for weddings', when the village children put a rope across the road and the bride and groom are not allowed to leave the church until a toll has been paid in silver by the groom.
