Next to the church are the Vicars Rooms, a meeting place available for hire and venue for a number of village events.

Barrow Hall is situated at the southern end of the village and could be overlooked by the casual visitor. It is now a residential care home offering specialised nursing care for 25 adults with a range of mental health problems and varying degrees of challenging behaviour. It was built in 1789 for George Uppleby Esquire, a local Gentleman of Privy Chamber to George the Third, and is a Grade 1 Listed building.


The Village Hall is easily recognized as the orange painted building in the High Street near to the Market Place. It is a venue for many village events and societies and is especially well-used as the home for the local Playgroup. For bookings, contact Kevin Wheeler 532584     

Papist Hall, the imposing building half way along the High Street, is one of the oldest buildings in the village and was extensively restored in the 1980s having been in danger of becoming derelict. It now comprises four separate apartments on short term lets.

Down Hall, a tall square-built mansion at the north end of the village, was built in 1877 as a combined house and basket-making factory. Basket-making from the osiers along the river bank was a major industry during the second half of the 19th century up to the First World War.

Midby Park is situated next to Foresters Hall and is an open area of parkland for the use by anyone in the village. It was gifted to the village by a local farmer and is held in trust by the Parish Council.
