The soil is chiefly clay, alternated with sand; the surface is generally flat, but rises in some parts to a considerable elevation, and the lower grounds are watered by the Car Dyke. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £6. 19. 1.; net income, £252; patrons, the family of Hildyard. The tithes were commuted for land in 1776. The church contains an altar-tomb and effigy to the memory of Gen.
