The Victorian primary school opened in 1860 and closed in 1993, when it merged with another local school in Newby Wiske to form a new school in neighbouring South Otterington. The village church of St Barnabas was built in 1868 but demolished in 1987 after its partial collapse in the previous year. The churchyard is still maintained.
