The church, of SS. Peter and Paul, is a building of about the thirteenth century: had fallen into a bad state of repair, but has been restored, principally at the expense of the present vicar, from plans by Mr. W. Slater, the diocesan architect: to the liberality of the vicar, the parish is also indebted for a National school, which was built here in the year 1860. The register dates from 1568. The living is a vicarage value £159 per annum, with residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Chichester, and held by the Rev. Henry John Rush, M.A., of Worcester College, Oxford. Mrs. Archdale Gratwicke, of Ham, is lady of the manor; and Thomas Bushby, Esq., and Mrs. Penfold are the principal landowners. The area is 1,287 acres, and the population in 1861 was 340.
