The village amenities include a post office, a combined C of E church and community hall, named St Aidan's, a primary school and three public houses, the Waggon and Horses on the B6462, the Travellers Inn on the A629 and the Smithy Arms located on Bower hill.There is a small amount of industry towards the northwest end of the village but much of the local activities centre around agriculture and farming.
