St Andrew is a dramatic example of what happens when a noble family entirely dominates a village. There was a medieval church here, surrounded by a little medieval village, but little of it now exists: Only a small side chapel remains,and even that has been restored almost out of all recognition. The rest of the church is a rebuilding of 1749.
