It is an ideal spot to go walking as the Viking way passes right through the heart of the village.

The path is very well signposted with the familiar yellow logo of a Viking helmet.

The church made the news when it was decided that the steeple was unsafe.

It was taken down in the 1800s leaving the church with just its square tower.
