The parish church was dedicated to St Briocus in 1259. The 13th century church was of cruciform shape, however all that remains of this in the present day church are parts of the tower, the walls at the west end and possibly part of the wall to the right of the High Altar. In 1965, a major flood with 4 ft 9 inches (1.45m) of water inside damaged the church.

Aged 100.
