Real property, £3,258. Pop., 272. Houses, 49. The property is not much divided. The manor formerly belonged to the Mainwar ing family; and their seat, Baddiley Hall, a very ancient structure of timber and plaster, was first converted into a farmhouse, and then recently pulled down. ...

The church dates from times when public buildings wore generally constructed of timber; consisted entirely of oak till 1811, but was then encased with brick; is still in pretty good condition; and contains two fine marble monuments of the Mainwarings. Charities, £43.
