"The Parish Church, St Mary, is an interesting structure of the 11th century, and was repaired and enlarged in 1844. In the Fitzherbert Chapel, adjoining the chancel, is a colossal statue, about eight feet high, of Christ suffering as a mock king.
The rectory is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev Christopher Dodsley.
Near the mansion is a handsome Catholic Chapel, in the Gothic style, built by the present Thomas Fitzherbert, Esq, with a neat house for the chaplain. The chapel has an elaborately rich roof, and a handsome tribune for the family.
At Yarnfield is a small chapel of ease, and a small Roman Catholic Chapel, built in 1836."
