Its name is derived from the Old English Wēo-dūn, meaning "Temple Hill". Before Christianity came there may have been an Anglo-Saxon pagan temple here.

The oldest parts of the Church of England parish church of SS Mary and Peter date from about 1100. It is a Grade II* listed building. The authors Edith Sitwell and her brother Sacheverell Sitwell are buried in the churchyard.
