Carnivals

The Village held Carnivals in the early days but these were probably more like a Village Fete. A Carnival was reinstated in 1976 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the village and continued through until the 1980s.

St Francis Church

St Francis Church is a unique building, having previously been a barn. It has a thatched roof, which is periodically been replaced. The origin of the building has many different explanations, some that it was moved to the site from elsewhere. It is more likely to have been a barn of Grooms Farm, which was on the same site and gave rise the the name of the road, Grooms Lane. This is borne out by an Ordnance Survey map for 1924, which shows a building in the position of the current Church.
