The village is located at the furthest point from the sea (Daily Mail/OS 2000) being 66miles from the nearest coast.</span>

The church has a tall steeple visible from some distance. The church was renovated in 2000 with aid of lottery funding and it now has disabled toilet facilities, baby changer and a small kitchen. Following a generous donation it is now equipped with a PA system and Hearing Loop

The pews in the Nave have been removed and replaced with individual chairs on a fitted carpet. The Chancel can be curtained off and this enables a large area to be used for social purposes such as coffee mornings, Rainbows/Brownies meetings, whist drives, Bingo, concerts, suppers and other entertainment. THe church is available for private functions by arrangement at a reasonable fee with free use of seating, tables and the kitchen facilities
