The local church is dedicated to St. Margaret and was originally built in the 13th century despite having a Victorian bell tower with a solitary bell. Village amenities include a primary school and a piece of land next to the church which was purchased in 2004 on behalf of the village for common use and now has a picnic bench and BBQ with disabled access. The local shop and post office have closed in recent years.
Hapton Hall is located close to the village and the Norwich-London Liverpool St. mainline. Several years ago, it was bought by Redwings Horse Sanctuary which now owns much of the land surrounding it. Before that time it was a working farm.
