History and amenities [ edit ]
Manor claim 2004 [ edit ]
The village became the focal point of press attention in 2004 as Mark Roberts had previously bought the Lord of the Manor title and then went to charge villagers excessive fees to cross what had always been used as their own land. Matters were raised in parliament and were debated with a reply on the subject from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs acknowledging 'need for reform of the remnants of feudal and manorial law'.
