Religious sites

The Anglican church of All Saints, which was consecrated after 1870, was constructed in the Early Decorated style to replace the old parish church of St. James the Great. This building was in turn converted to house the school and was intended to hold a maximum of 80 children.[2] It is now a private residence.
