The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary may originally have been 12th century, as a Norman doorway of that date survives in the chancel. The doorway is not in its original position but has been re-set. The north aisle and arcade are 13th century. The ornate Perpendicular Gothic bell-tower is notable. Dr. F.J. Allen, who was an authority on the notable late medieval Somerset towers, described St. Mary's tower as "the finest parish church tower in England outside Somerset". Many of St. Mary's church windows are also Perpendicular Gothic; with three, four of five lights.
One hundred years ago the village had two public houses: the Dog and Partridge and the Wheatsheaf. The Dog and Partridge has been converted in to a residential property. A shop was officially opened on 21 September 2007 by television presenter Alan Titchmarsh. The village has a primary school. Children from the parish travel to Oundle for secondary education.
