The parish church of Holy Trinity (which was at one time known as New Fens Chapel) was converted from a former brick tithe barn in 1836 and later extended in 1863.
In 1872 the township of Bettisfield became a separate parish.
To the south of the village is Fenn's Moss, a large area of peat bog which is an important National Nature Reserve, rich in wildlife. This was formerly a major source of peat for fuel and later horticulture.
