The soil is clayey, but fertile, producing good crops of wheat, barley, and beans. The living is a rectory consolidated with the vicarage of Fressingfield, in the diocese of Norwich. The church, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, is a small ancient edifice with wooden belfry, and stands near a mile from the village. The charities produce about £3 per annum. Captain C. Rayley, R.N., is lord of the manor."
