The village, which is small, is situated under the Cotswold hills, and is chiefly agricultural. The soil consists of clay and stone brash, with a subsoil of oolite. Stone for building is quarried. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £291, and the glebe comprises 46 acres, valued at £60 per annum.

The living is a rectory with the curacy of Owlpen annexed, in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol, value £319. The church, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, is an ancient stone structure with a square campanile tower containing one bell. The parochial charities consist of the interest of £50 bequeathed by Mr. John White, of Kingscote, and distributed to the poor in bread every Christmas. There is a mixed school, conducted on the National system, and entirely supported by the rector. The court-house, which is still in existence, has been converted into a farm. Colonel Kingscote is lord of the manor and principal landowner."
