Almost every generation has left its mark on our ancient St Andrew Parish Church which serves this small village of about 750 people. In all probability, the present building was erected on the site of an earlier Norman structure, as is evidenced by the clasping buttresses on the lower part of the Tower, indicating a 12th century origin.  

June 2016 refurbishment of church organ commences >>more<<
