St. Giles (parish church)
The church of St. Giles is a small but neat building of stone, chiefly of the Early English period, with some Norman details, consisting of chancel and nave, north aisle, south porch and a turret on the western gable containing one bell: in 1905 the chancel was restored and the nave in part, at a cost of about £140: there are 100 sittings.
