The parish church, called St. Peter's when it was established in the 14th century is now dedicated to St. Mary. It has a square tower which still retains the earlier dedication to St Peter. The tower, which houses the church's four bells, is decorated with crenellations and gargoyle like figures that double as waterspouts. Inside the church are several notable artifacts including three stained glass windows, a Norman font and a monument to lady Pauncefort for sending her right hand to Palestine to ransom her lord from the infidels.
