The living is a rectory* [the asterisk denotes that there is a parsonage and glebe belonging to the living] in the diocese of Worcester, of the value of £320, in the gift of J. G. Bourne, Esq. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is a small brick building with a tower. In the interior is a handsome marble monument to Mrs. Hill, by Flaxman. There is a school founded by the trustees of the late Earl Dudley, and some small charities. Broom House is the principal residence. Earl Dudley is lord of the manor."
