Large village, pleasantly set around a central green, with a stream running through it. Recorded in Domesday as "Grundesbur", "Grundesburg", "Grundesburh" or "Grundesburc". Basts, just to the east of the church, is a fine Tudor building, rebuilt by Thomas Awall. The father of his wife, Alice, was the master cook to Edward IV and Henry VII.
