“St Andrew's : Except for the ancient preaching cross in the churchyard, little remains of the Saxon church which stood on the site of St. Andrew’s Church. The building you see it today has a Norman 11th Century nave with 13th Century additions. The chancel was added in 1834 and the pews in 1881. Some of the Saxon stones still remain at the base of the tower which was enlarged in the 13th Century and the top layer in 1603. Inside the church there are some very fine monuments. You enter St. Andrew’s Church through a splendid carved Norman doorway with 14th Century statue niche above it.
The village has a fascinating round house with a thatched roof. It was built by the local schoolmaster, James Whistler, in the mid-18th century. Being worried about French invasion, he had his pupils dig out huge cellars for the whole village to hide in! Later, when Mr. Whistler's daughter was resident, the living room became the Wesleyans first preaching room.”
