The village has a popular 17th century
white cottage inn The Hunny Bell located on a slight
rise on the village green just behind the conker tree.
Up until the 1970s when the first bar was installed,
beer used to be served straight from the cellar. Food is
an important ingredient of any pub but the emphasis is
on traditional fayre at The Hunny Bell rather than the
Melton Constable and Briston are further along the road and have a good range of local shops, stores / post office fish and chip, bakers and butchers. Or in the other direction is the larger town of Holt with its main street lined by Georgian buildings and its abundance of interesting antique emporiums and knick-knack shops hidden down streets and twisting alleyways. On its outskirts is a large park.
One of the past rectors at nearby Edgefield was the Cannon Walter Herbert Macron he was rector at the church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Edgefield from 1875 to 1937. He also took the unusual step of having his church moved from its original location to the one you see today.
After the black death
of 1349 the people of Edgefield upped sticks and moved
to higher ground, when Cannon Macron took over he
decided that it was about time that the church followed
the villagers. So he had it dismantled moved half
a mile and reassembled.
