The village is home to the Crown Inn and the Greyhound public houses. The village does not have a church of its own, sharing St Leonards church with neighbouring Shirland.

In 1250–1251, the village was given "borough" status by the Earl of Derby: he freed his villeins, turned their holdings into "burgages" and started an annual fair.
