The church is ancient, consisting of a nave, aisle, and chancel, in the Early English style: the pews and sittings are very old, but the interior has been repaired, and the chancel rebuilt: it has a square tower, surmounted by a spire, and 4 bells. The register dates from 1560. The living is a vicarage, yearly value £364, with residence, in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester, and held by the Rev. James Carleton King, M.A., of St. Mary Hall, Oxford. Here are National schools for boys & girls, under the management of the vicar. The parish comprises 3,340 acres; in 1861 the population was 500.
