Kelly's Directory 1919 states "Public Elementary School (mixed), built in 1871, for 40 children; Mrs. Edith Dale, mistress".

Perhaps surprisingly, given the number of pupils in 1919, the school closed in March 1926.

Kelly's Directory 1919 states "The Church (St. Cuthbert), which is a neat stone structure, consisting of nave, chancel, north aisle, transept, and a small tower and spire, with three bells, was built in 1859, in lieu of the previous one, which was very ancient, at the expense of the Rev. William Wright and the Rev. John Carr.

In the chancel is an ancient credence table, and the reredos, which is of alabaster, is in memory of the two sons of S. W. Wright, Esq.

In the east end is a memorial window of stained glass, to Miss Mary Wright, and another in the south side of the chancel to Henrietta de Coetlogon"

The base of the cross takes the form of a socket stone 0.75m square in section which is now largely buried. Fixed into the socket stone is the lower portion of the shaft, rectangular in section at the base and tapering slightly to a height of 0.9m"
