The living is a vicarage, annual value 111: the Rev. John Henry GALE is the incumbent. The church, a very ancient structure, with square tower and 6 bells, is supposed to have been erected about the tenth century. The Kennet and Avon canal passes through the northern portion of the parish. The area is 3,502 acres, and the population, in 1851, was 677. The Marquis of AILESBURY is the principal landowner and lord of the manor.

FYFIELD or Fifield Manor House, the residence of the PENRUDDOCKE family for several generations, is in the Elizabethan style, and well worthy [sic] the survey of the antiquarian.

CLINCH, or Clench, is a tithing 2 miles north; Totridge, three-quarters of a mile north.
