The village, which is of small extent, is situated on the river Rea and Kington canal, and is wholly agricultural. The soil is chiefly clay, with a gravel subsoil. The land is partly in hop-grounds.

The living is a rectory* with the curacy of Milson annexed, in the diocese of Hereford, value £360, in the patronage of Worcester College, Oxford.
