It has an historic Grade II listed church, first built in 1829, which contains a stained glass window dedicated to Isaac Fletcher of Frizington. In 1904 the church was remodelled, with the addition of a bell tower and eight bells cast by John Taylor & Son of Loughborough. In 2014 it was announced that the church is to close, and the bells hopefully re-used in another church.
The village also has a 19th-century primary school and an old Sunday school.
