St Luke's church shares the vicar with other churches in the neighbouring parishes. In bygone days the parish would have had its own vicar as named by the board inside. Records suggest that a church existed on this site since 1577. A structure was built in 1818. Only to be replaced in 1844-5 by the present building from the generosity of Mrs Gaskarth, and Colonel Montagu, of London. Their graves are immediately on the right through the main gate. Local slate rubble was used for the walls with sandstone windows and doors. Two of the stained glass windows commemorate the benefactors. There is a tower.
Local Methodists meet here on the third Sunday of each month, at 9.30 am. At other times there is a Church of England service. (visit link
