King's Caple has a parish church of St John's, a primary school, and the small old school which now is used as a parish room.
Opposite the church there is an earthwork known as Caple Tump, reputed to be the remains of a castle motte. The tump is round and now has trees growing on top. Legend has it that this was the site of village fairs in recent centuries.
