Getting here

The parish was mentioned in the Domesday Book and its name derives from the Saxon "village by the stream". The parish contains a long barrow at Adam's Grave, a section of the Wansdyke and a famous white horse, cut in 1812.

The tiny church is Saxon and was much rebuilt in the 18th century. There is a fine 16th century tie-beamed and windbraced roof, a Georgian gallery and some interesting monuments. There are several stained glass panels, including work of Laurence Whistler.
