The parish church of St Bartholomew appears to date mainly from the 13th century, with the possibility of earlier remains. The tower was built in the late 13th century and the spire was added in the 14th century. The whole church was repaired in the 10th century. There were once north and south aisles, but these were destroyed in the 16th or 17th century. Excavations carried out here in 1999 found the remains of a medieval wall. This is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
