St. Peter and St. Paul's Church is in the Perpendicular and Decorated styles. It has a fine tower, rising to 115 feet, and excellent Victorian stained glass.
The small Market Place is very busy, and the stalls spill into nearby streets. There is also a thriving antiques market and auctioneers.
The Old Mill Hotel has been converted from a corn mill, and is attractively situated beside the mill race.
The Museum of Gas and Local History has been converted from the town gasworks.
Just outside the town is a National Hunt racecourse.
