The picturesque heart of the village is the Beck which runs along the edge of the Low Green area. The Green is used for village celebrations such as the Queen’s Jubilees and the annual St Anne’s church fete. The church is situated in the highest part of the village, the clock chimes ringing out over the village. The sound of the church bells can also be heard as the bell-ringers practise their peels for church services and weddings. Just along from the Church is another smaller green area known as High Green. The Parish cemetery is situated just off from here.
During the summer the beck is a hive of happy activity as the children fish and paddle in the water. Numerous benches along the beck side allow for family picnics. Two public houses, the Oak Tree and Bay Horse, overlook the Low Green and the beck. The Social Club, run by a committee, can be found on the High St.
A number of take away food business can be found in the village. These include a fish and chip shop, pizza and Chinese, as well as the local cafe.
There is a primary school, Michael Syddall Church of England School, which accepts children from 4-11 years. Originally funded by money left by the Rev. Michael Syddall in 1668. It moved to its new premises in 1974. There is also a pre school, run by a management committee, and can be found in the grounds of the primary school.
