The CHURCH, (St. Botolph,) is in that part of the parish called WEST-BRIGGS, and is a small fabric, with a lofty tower. The living is a perpetual curacy, which was augmented with £1,000 of Queen Anne's Bounty, from 1767 to 1842, and valued in 1831 at £62. The Bishop of Ely is appropriator and patron, and the Rev. Wm. Harold Henslowe, incumbent.
The Poor's Land, 16A. 8P., let for £34, was awarded at the enclosure, in 1780, in lieu of commonright and other land, which had belonged to the poor. The rent is distributed in coals. At the same time, Allotments, containing 30A., were awarded to the poor for fuel and the pasturage of geese, &c.
