T. B. Morris, M.A., who has 30a. of glebe. The tithes are commuted for £543. The church, dedicated to All Saints, has a square tower with four bells, and contains an antique font. The Baptists and Methodists have each a chapel here. The poor's land, 3a., left by Roger Dacle, in 1684, and 6a., purchased with £100, left by Sarah Franklin, in 1703, produces £32 per annum.
