The tiny village consists of The Cat
public house, a Post Office, a general store, an antique shop and around 100 houses. St Marys Church stands to the west of the village. The present ornate tower was built in 1871, when the original tower was taken down. Evidence of an earlier church on the site is to be found in a small stone figure of Saxon origin built into the arcading above the south aisle. The church has a Norman nave (about AD 1100) and a Transitional chancel (built by Roger de Birmingham, AD 1272-1307) and despite extensive restorations in 1749 and 1871 the distinguishing features remain.
The village is dominated by the large Enville Hall estate. The Earls of Stamford lived in Enville Hall which is still owned and lived in by the family though the title is extinct. The Hall, which once boasted its own private racecourse (now a mere forestry track), remains a private house, but it hosts occasional events each year.
