Occupation of this site is recorded back to iron age remnants (uncovered prior to development of Stedlyn Farm - now St Pauls Court). The importance of the local land-owning families means there are many sources that explain the long-standing occupation of this village that straddles the west side of the Lyn Valley. The village is rich in examples of historically important buildings. In particular, the land surrounding the church of Saints Peter and Paul that takes pride of place overseeing the village. Ludgate Lane has some fine examples of Tudor buildings. Indeed, every corner of the village has its areas of historic importance - everything from ancient family piles to the need for attractive modern standards of housing after the second world war that can be seen opposite the public house and church.
Not surprisingly, there are many postcards that record the picturesque aspects of this ancient village.
