Whilst there you might like to take a stroll around the village green, which has some interesting relics including this stone.

John Wesley preached from this stone in 1782 - 'The World is My Parish'

A Roman Milestone

It is a lovely village and quiet now that it has a bypass which has taken all the traffic out of the village.


Lastly, if you want to explore the village and surrounding area on foot then check out this link
