The village, which is considerable, is situated on the river Badenham, and is chiefly agricultural. The extensive Suffolk drill manufactory of Smyth and Sons is in this parish. The great tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of 432 11s., the vicarial for 91 5s., and those of the incumbent for 120. The living is a perpetual curacy annexed to the vicarage of Sibton, in the diocese of Norwich. The church is dedicated to St. Michael. The parochial charities produce about 54 per annum, realised from church lands. The Independents and Wesleyans have each a place of worship."
