The parish church dates back to the early 13th century with the most unusual feature being the ornate rood screen, misericords and stalls which were previously in Chirbury Priory in Shropshire.

PC William Davies, 43, died from injuries suffered whilst trying to make an arrest in Montgomery in 1903. The police then evicted his wife and four children from the family home two weeks after his death.
