The Church (All Saints) is a rectory, valued in K.B. at £23.18s.6½d, and now at £571. The Rev. C. Hall is patron and incumbent, and has a handsome residence. The Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists have each a chapel here. The poor have £6.1s.8d. a year, from eight rent charges, left by unknown donors; and the interest of £55, benefaction money, vested with the Earl of Carlisle. The schoolmaster has the interest of £21, left for the education of two poor children.
