St James Church was built by John Taylor, the oldest triplet born to William and Joan Taylor in about 1480. The family probably lived in a cottage to the north-east of the Church, where several of the village's oldest timber-framed cottages still stand. The triplets were presented as a rarity to King Henry VII while on a hunting trip to Needwood Forest so he undertook to educate the three boys if they came to manhood.
