The village boasts many amenities, including a primary school, a church and two popular village pubs/restaurants. At the heart of the village is three acres of recreational gardens, playground, bowling green, tennis court and a lake, used by the angling club.

Forsbrook and Cheadle are both close by with a large choice of facilities whilst other amenities are within a short drive.

Enjoying a private setting, The Old Vicarage was the village rectory from the 1930's (when it was purpose built by the Diocese of Lichfield) until 1983. It has since been sympathetically updated to become a family house embodying latest technology whilst retaining many original features.
