Just on the edge of the village is a cave which is said to carry traces of habitation by pre-historic man. Within the bounds of the village itself there is a church dating to the 12th century. St Michaela's Church is a listed historic monument with a notable façade, added in the 16th century. There is also a Romanesque bell tower.
