The village itself has a very good primary school, and school buses pick up in neighbouring Abbeystead for the popular Lancaster Secondary Schools, including the Boys and Girls Grammar Schools. There is also an excellent local pub. Accessibility into Lancaster City Centre is only a 15 minute drive away, which boasts two universities, the infirmary and a varied range of high street and independent shops and eateries alongside many cultural attractions.
