The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Canterbury, of the value of £290, in the patronage of G. Musgrave, Esq. The church is dedicated to SS. Peter and Paul. It is a spacious ancient structure, with a massive western tower, a semicircular arched doorway with zigzag ornaments, and other parts in the Norman style. It contains the tomb of Dr. Plot, author of histories of the counties of Oxford and Stafford, who died in 1696. He was born at the manor-house in this parish. Borden has the benefit of a valuable bequest by William Barrow, in 1707, for the support of 80 widows and other poor persons. The annual value of the endowment is about £1,000. There are some other small charities."
