The sub-pages contain a wealth of information about the history of the village. They include:
- The village photo archive. This includes photographs of pages from two albums produced by Elizabeth Gallop up to 1981. They cover the different parts of the village and show the makeup of areas and the houses in those areas with descriptions of the history.
- A page about the Arts Society (NADFAS) church recording project, which compiled a detailed record of the contents of St John the Baptist Church in 2017.
- A transcription, with illustrations, of a record of the church architecture compiled in 1845.
