The village hall was previously a Baptist chapel. It has recently been refurbished and extended and is used for a broad variety of activities.
The village pub, the White Horse, has a plaque to 1982 Grand National winner, Grittar whose owner Frank Gilman lived in the parish. The pub re-opened in March 2008 after refurbishment.
