Here are extensive brick and tile kilns. The appropriate tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of 320. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Ely, value 110, in the patronage of King's College, Cambridge. The church is dedicated to St. Peter. The charities produce about 15s. per annum. The Baptists have a place of worship. Ravens Hall is the principal residence. The Rev. R. Daniel, of Coombs, is lord of the manor."
