The former Rectory, near the church, was repeatedly extended during the middle of the 19th century for a rector who had 22 children!
Further up the Nailbourne Valley lies Barham whose church, St John’s, forms the centre of a handsome group of buildings including the 18th century Barham Court. The church’s most distinctive feature is a tall, splay-foot spire, once no doubt covered in shingles but now copper-covered and therefore green in colour. This must be a modern, possibly post-war intervention done to reduce costs. The church itself is a large, cruciform building, of late 13th century date, with an early 14th century south aisle added to the nave and a west tower of the same period.
