There are railway stations at Sandy and St. Neot's on the Great Northern line at equal distances from the village, which is small and wholly agricultural. The tithes were commuted for land or money payment under an Enclosure Act in 1813. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Ely, value £208, in the patronage of the bishop. The church is modern, and is dedicated to SS. Peter and Paul. The charities consist of an endowment of £14 to the free school, and about £30 annually, arising from rents, and given to the poor.
