The Hall, a neat mansion in a pleasant park, near a small rivulet, is the seat of Edward Bridgman, Esq., lord of the manor, and owner of all the parish, except a farm of 600a. belonging to T. Thornhill, Esq. The manor formerly belonged to Bury Abbey. The Church, (St. Mary) is a small thatched structure, and the rectory, valued in K.B. at 13 0s. 4d., is consolidated with Barningham. The tithes here were commuted in 1843, for a yearly modus of 433 19s. The Town Estate comprises two cottages occupied by paupers, and 8a. of land let for 10 12s. a year, and partly lying in Barningham parish. The rent is applied in the reparation of the church, and when any surplus remains, it is added to the poor rates. A benefaction of 10, given by R. Firmage, in 1611, for the poor of this parish, was laid out in the purchase of land at Rattlesden, now let for 1 10s. 6d. per annum. The poor parishioners have also 10a. of fen-land, awarded to them, at an enclosure about 70 years ago, and now let for 5 a year, subject to the right of the poor to enter and cut turf for fuel.
