The Wood on the east side of the parish comprises 305a. The Church, dedicated to St. Thomas, has a tower and six bells, and the rectory, valued in the King's book at £6 13s. 4d., is in the gift of Charles Lombe, Esq., the lord of the manor, and incumbency of the Rev. Louis Augustus Norgate, B.A., who has 21a. 1r. 26p. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £410, awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes. At the enclosure in 1814, two acres were set apart as a clay pit for the parishioners.
