Church Green was originally a pond near the church which became contaminated and was filled in. Another pond, in front of the school, suffered the same fate and the third, known as Slut Hole on the eastern side of the village was filled in later. Two pumps stood on the land opposite 99/101 Main Street, the western one for horses and the other for general use.

The old Smithy was situated adjacent to the green but is no longer present, whilst the Blacksmith’s house was nearby to 61 Main Street.
