The village contains two Grade II listed 19th-century houses,[1] and a post-medieval house.[2]

The village hall was built in 1920. Occupations in 1933 included four farmers, a carpenter, a stationer & sub-postmaster, a blacksmith, a gravel merchant, a beer retailer, a shopkeeper, a steward to Wades Hall, and the licensee of the White Hart public house.[3] Wades Hall is the remaining wing of a larger house dating to the 16th century, Grade II listed, and approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) northwest from the village.[4]
