The living is a curacy in the diocese of Bath and Wells, annexed to the rectory* of Curry-Mallet. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is a very small building. The Rector of Curry-Mallet is lord of the manor. There is an endowed school for girls. The boys attend a school in the adjoining parish of Staple-Fitzpaine."
