The Church (Virgin Mary,), is a small thatched fabric, with a square tower, and was thoroughly repaired about four years ago. Its gallery was erected in 1827. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4. 15s. 10d., and in 1831 at £240. T.T. Gurdon, Esq., is patron, and the Rev. M.B. Darby, of Hingham, incumbent."
