In this parish are the ruins of a castle, said to have been founded by the Bohuns, earls of Hereford, and long held by them as High Constables of England. The walls with towers at the angles, the principal gatehouse flanked by square towers, and part of the great hall, still remain. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Llandaff, value £260, in the patronage of M. H. Noel, Esq. The Wesleyans have a chapel in the village, and there are charitable endowments, partly for education, worth £17 a year."
