The village currently has one pub and a number of shops and local businesses. The parish church was established in the thirteenth century and is dedicated to Saint Peter. At Parkminster to the south of the village centre is St. Hugh’s Charterhouse, the only post-Reformation Carthusian monastery in the United Kingdom.
