The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Norwich, value 150, in the patronage of the Marquis of Bristol. The church, dedicated to St. Edmund, was repaired in 1844, when a new chancel was built, and was again redecorated in 1850. There is a handsome parsonage-house, built in 1845, and a new free school, erected in the following year. The parochial charities are worth 10 a year. The soil is extremely sandy, and a considerable portion of the parish is in heath."
