The village dates back to Roman times. Its most prominent building is its hall, a large square brick house, built in the late 18th century in a landscaped park of around 100 acres (0.40 km2).
Situated among the trees of the park overlooking the lake is the parish church, dedicated to St Michael and All Angels.
