According to legend, St Cuthman built a church where he stopped after carrying his mother in a wheelbarrow. The parish church was originally dedicated to him, later to St Andrew and now to both. The father of King Alfred the Great, Ethelwulf of Wessex, was originally buried in that church before being transferred to Winchester. A Saxon grave slab (incised with two crosses indicating a royal burial) is on display in the church porch.
