It has a rateable value of £1928, and had 204 inhabitants in 1881, living on 1048 acres. The greater part of the parish belongs to the Earl of Orford, who is impropriator of the rectory and lord of the manor.

The CHURCH (St. Margaret) comprises nave, chancel, and square tower with one bell. The living is a discharged vicarage, certified at £27, and now valued at £143. The Norwich Charity Trustees are patrons, and the Rev. Samuel Marsh Shepheard, B.A., who resides at Erpingham, is the incumbent. The glebe is 24A. 1R. 17P., and the tithes have been commuted for £140 to the vicar and £195 per annum to the impropriator.
