The small chapel on Normanby Road was built for the Primitive Methodists in 1862.

The chapel closed in 1918 and after some years the building was converted for use as the village hall.

Much of the ironstone church of St Mary’s is 13th century, though there was extensive restoration by James Fowler in 1871.

The stained glass, the reredos and the east wall paintings all date from then.
