The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture. The soil is clayey, and subsoil rock. The living is a vicarage annexed to that of Molland. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is an ancient structure, with a square embattled tower containing three bells. The interior of the church contains an altar window, a plain Norman doorway, and several monuments. The parochial charities produce about £3 10s. per annum Sir Robert George Throckmorton, Bart., is lord of the manor."
