St John the Baptist

The village name is thought to mean 'Homestead of Eada and his people'.[1]

There is a small Church dedicated to St John the Baptist and the River Derwent flows through to the north of the village. The original bridge crossing the Derwent was built in 1731. This was replaced by the current bridge built in 1970.[2]

The village hall can be found next to The Providence, a public house.

To the north of the village lies the remains of a Benedictine priory. This was home to Benedictine nuns from 1163-1539.[3]
