The manor house is from the 17th century and is Grade II* listed.[1]

There was a water mill on the River Avon, marked as disused on a 1959 map.[2] The present building, now a house, is from the late 17th and 18th centuries;[3] nearby stands the mill-owner's house of c. 1800.[4]

The small church of St Giles was built c. 1800, in ashlar with a slate roof and an octagonal cupola.[5] The building replaced an earlier structure which was attached to the mill, first recorded in 1304.[6] Today the ecclesiastical parish of Tytherton Kellaways is part of the Draycot benefice.[7]
