The small but beautiful and interesting church of St. Chad occupies a slight prominence in the East of the village where some of the older buildings are situated. The earliest church on this site (which is thought to have had religious significance even before Christianity was established in this country) was built in the 12th century, and remnants of this smaller original church still form part of the fabric of the present building. A plan on the wall of the North aisle shows their location and that of building works done in 14th, 15th, 18th and 19th centuries.
