The living is a curacy, annexed to the rectory of Street, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The register dates from 1671. There is a National school for both sexes, at which a Sunday-school is held. The Wesleyans have a chapel. The Marquis of Bath is lord of the manor and principal landowner."
