The village has a population of around nearly five hundred people with six streets or lanes, including two public rights of way, one of which, Soar Lane, gives access to the river. Visitors will find a local map and guide located opposite the Plough Inn, and should try to find time to visit the 12th Century Church of St James and the nearby Community Shop, which is situated behind the Village Hall.
