The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Bedford, and diocese of Lincoln, rated in the king's books at £33.2.1., and in the patronage of the Rev. James Beard. The church is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul. There is a place of worship for Particular Baptists. A school is supported by charitable donations amounting to about £15 per annum.
