The ancient church of St. Oswald was rebuilt in Norman times by the Mowbray family but the tower was added later in the 15th century. A fire in 1933 gutted the church which was rebuilt in the decorated 14th century Gothic style, the work of Austin and Paley. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, was married here.
