The substratum abounds with coal of good quality, of which mines are in operation. The living is a discharged vicarage, endowed with a portion of the rectorial tithes, and valued in the king's books at £4. 14. 8.; net income, £222: it is in the patronage of the Crown, and the remainder of the rectorial tithes belong to various persons. The incumbent's tithes in Shilbottle township have been commuted for £77, and the impropriators for £246: the vicar has a glebe of 18 acres. The church, which was thoroughly repaired about 1793, retains a portion of its original Norman character. There is a place of worship for Wesleyans.
